MOVIES MADE ME – Where reel life meets real life.
Movies Made Me exists to encourage the collective sharing of our deep, individual experiences with film. It’s a place where, as a guest, you can feel secure in opening up, sharing real emotion and exposing your inner workings, as you tell me how movies have helped you, molded you, hindered you, inspired you, made you unique. It’s a place where, as a listener, you can hear real people share real stories that connect with you, surprise you, amuse you, move you. Movies Made Me celebrates film and celebrates identity by bringing these powerful ideas together and offering a new, bold way of thinking about the intersection of culture and self. I’m not interested in movie reviews or news; I’m interested in you. I want to explore something deeper that hasn’t been talked about much before. The movie-going experience is ingrained in our culture and our lives. Doesn’t it make sense that the movies we see become ingrained in our sense of self? That’s what I’m here to explore with you.
Join me as I task my guests with discussing the five movies that have influenced them and helped form their identities. Virtually every one of us has had a film experience that altered us in some way, that gave us a passion, a fear, a way of looking at the world. These are the movies we’ll explore, as we talk about how they changed each guest and why. We’ll also delve into the broad spectrum of other influences that have turned them into the people they are today.
