Also, listeners: We’d love to hear from you! We’re doing a series about cinema, and we want to know about a recent film you saw from the 85 world – that’s Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East – and the environment in which you saw it. A packed theater in Bangkok? A pop-up in Rio? New York? Berlin? Describe the film and where you saw it in a short voice memo, and email it to media@emerge85.io. Remember to include your name and where you’re calling from.
