TO SLEEP WITH ANGER: A Very Caro Movie | Feminist Frequency Radio 171

Ebony is back to hosting as she and Carolyn surrender to the contemplative pacing and character-driven appeal of “A Very Caro Movie”: Charles Burnett’s 1990 masterpiece, TO SLEEP WITH ANGER. Recently added to the Criterion Collection, the film centers around a middle-class Black family in South Central LA, and the mysterious drifter—both charming and menacing—who upends their lives. Starring Danny Glover, Mary Alice and Vonetta McGee, TO SLEEP WITH ANGER is just the kind of luminous and thoughtful storytelling to course-correct a podcast which may or may not have been talking about a few too many MCU titles of late. In addition to our main discussion, we’ll be making a Big Announcement regarding the future of the FFR podcast, as well as sharing some thoughts on the recent news surrounding Activision Blizzard.
