Happy June everyone! This month I had a wonderful conversation with Myriam Mouflih (on zoom hence the crackling, apologies).
We spoke about working from home, the pros and cons of online film programmes during Covid-19 and institutional racism in the arts, specifically Jemma Desai's The Work is Not For Us paper and current online talks series with LUX. As well as Myriam's recent article for MAP magazine, friendship and her new beanbag.
Enjoy! Caitlin x
