Bad Feminists Making Films is a show where we talk to bad feminist filmmakers who are confronting and changing the film industry through intersectional and decolonial practice. Our podcast features intimate conversations with feminist filmmakers about their filmmaking journeys, including cringe-worthy moments, sweet successes, and tips for navigating and challenging male-dominated spaces. Join us as we work towards creating community, building alternatives, and transforming the film industry.
Artist and activist Monica Jahan Bose describes “rising up” to challenge the Kavanaugh nomination by teaming up with other women media-makers. Monica reflects on where her fearlessness comes from—her background as an environmental lawyer and performance artist. She shares her unique approach to filmmaking and other art forms as one of “forming community”—using storytelling and shared artistic authority with women to tackle climate change and other social justice issues.
