Reverse Shot Happy Hour: Freedom

Jul 3, 2020

In 2020, during the first year of the pandemic, Reverse Shot editors Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert and longtime contributor Farihah Zaman hosted a weekly Happy Hour—an online hangout for informal discussions about the state of cinema, criticism, and culture. BYOB. This week, the discussion focused on “American movies” and featured a bevy of critics, including Aliza Ma, A.G. Sims, Nicholas Russell, Nellie Killian, Chloe Lizotte, Caden Mark Gardener, Ashley Clark, Ryan Swen, Eric Hynes, and Chris Wisniewski.

Reverse Shot is an online film criticism magazine published by Museum of the Moving Image.

Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
