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 7 - The Midnight Swim
4 days ago
Sarah Adina Smith’s The Midnight Swim is not a film that can easily be summarized. At its core it is a family drama about the connection between three half-sisters and their mother who has mysteriously gone missing. However, it also features elements from the found footage genre, a wonderful musical number, a shawl that is downright creepy, and deep questions about the transcendent nature of death. Needless to say there is a lot to chew on in this episode. We also discuss our short films picks of the week: Donato Sansone’s Journal Anime and Ben Brand’s Life is Beautiful.
