In this, the second of two FREQ Show episodes devoted to media literacy, we delve deeper into some essential concepts after establishing the foundations in our first episode. Here, we dig into how elements like cinematography and sound design shape our experience of visual media, and how the centering of white people in movies and TV, a centering that was reinforced in multiple insidious ways, has left an indelible impact on our society. We need to keep telling different kinds of stories, and questioning the messages embedded in so much of the media that movie and TV studios are still churning out.
