Acclaimed director Hany Abu-Assad is a real standup guy. Randle McMurphy…eh, not so much. But ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST has us rooting for McMurphy nonetheless, and for a young Hany, he offered a glimpse into the nature of oppression, and the power of creativity as a form of resistance. No, really!
After Jordan and Hany have a deep and thoughtful conversation about all that, and about his new film, HUDA’S SALON…Jordan has one quick thing to say about something else deep: the new trailer for DEEP WATER.

About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
