About This Show
Welcome to Changing Reels! A bi-weekly podcast that celebrates diversity in front of and behind the camera by revisiting overlooked films and exploring their pop culture significance. In each episode, hosts Andrew Hathaway and Courtney Small dissect a feature film that they feel deserves more love, as well as highlight two short films that relate to the main film in some fashion (or so they hope).

Episode 13 - Beyond the Lights
4 days ago
The world of pop music is often explored in film through a satirical lens. Gina Prince-Bythewood's Beyond the Lights is one of those rare films that takes an honest look at the complexities of the industry. Centered around a romance between a pop star and a police officer, the film boldly examines topics such as race, depression, and the objectification of women in the media. We also take a moment to discuss our short film picks of the week: Elizabeth St. Philip’s The Colour of Beauty and the Michael K. Williams starring Am I Typecast?
