On this episode of IN THE CROSSHAIRS, we took an especially deep dive into the Pixar short film BAO, which premiered in front of THE INCREDIBLES 2 to a combination of praise and scorn. Regular contributor Rocky Pajarito hosted this episode and spoke to the filmmakers Lisa Wu and Jackie Zhou. They had very personal conversations about a very personal movie, which lead to excellent discussions of diversity representation in blockbuster movies and how to authentically tell the stories of the marginalized. We hope you’ll enjoy.
