Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Sixty-Five: Everyone's a Critic: Chandler Levack Talks Filmmaking and Cancelled Culture

Interview by 
Mica Lemiski
Chandler Levack

Chandler Levack is an award-winning journalist and filmmaker who is in love with Jonah Hill! (She interviewed him and the chemistry was HOT.) Chandler is here to talk about how being a film critic has helped her create better art, what it felt like to be a young female music critic (as in, a novelty) in the 90s, and the pros and cons of Twitter as a platform for cultural criticism. We also chat about her fear of birds, the VIFF debut of Feminist Live Reads (October 1st at the Rio in Vancouver!) and why it's important for women to tackle male perspectives in writing and film.
