Our show features recording of Lessons and Carols for Advent & Christmas, a concert of the combined choirs of The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation and 88 Keys! Lessons and Carols for Advent & Christmas interweaves the Biblical stories from the fall, the prophecy of Jesus’ birth, and the birth of Jesus with carols — ancient, traditional and contemporary featuring choir anthems as well as congregational carols.
We also hope to have a few carols from Caroling for Love and Liberation, an all-ages action held on Tuesday with mashed up carols, from the solemn to the silly, for Black liberation.
This week we feature two documentary film makers from South Asia creating media about social outliers, and social justice issues.
First we have a LIVE call in all the way from Mumbai : Anand Patwardhan is a documentary film maker based in India who’s films focus on themes such as the nuclear arms race, the treatment of dalits, and patriarchy and religion. Today he joins us on the phone to talk about media consolidation in India and how it affects our ability to disseminate information and critique the government.
Then, we’ll hear from an interview with director Saad Khan about his new movie about LGBT Pakistanis, called “Hide And Seek” and we also hear about his new upcoming project on Pakistani showgirls, that is, women on the stage and in theater.
