BONUS EPISODE: PoaLoF x DW Crossover!
We joined Laurel Hechanova and Audrey Nieh on their show Podcast of a Lady on Fire, which is a cathartic exploration of the filmmaking, themes and community involved in Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire, to discuss 18th century French abortions, ineffective butt kicks, and usefully toxic teas.
If you haven't seen this movie yet, we just have four words for you: Lesbian. Period. Romance. Drama.
Once you do see it, be on the lookout for Post-PoaLoF Syndrome. Symptoms include ennui, the profound urge to stare at the ceiling, downloading Duolingo, mild heart pain and shortness of breath, tearfulness, and a sense that you'll never be the same.
Our recommendations: Lie down. Elevate your feet, preferably on an embroidered pillow. A good cup of (non-toxic) tea and a croissant. Watch Portrait on Hulu eleventy billion times, and listen to Podcast of a Lady on Fire to join the awesome community around this film.
