“Tell me a tale of yourself, so that I might know thee,” King Arthur asks Dev Patel’s Gawain inThe Green Knight (2021). At a time in her life when she was struggling with illness and her own creative ambitions, Nyla Innuksuk heard the question as if she were the one being asked. She’ll tell us all about it – and lots of great behind-the-scenes stories of her tale of Indigenous girls in the Canadian Arctic, SLASH/BACK.
Then, Jordan takes a moment to remember director Jeff Barnaby.

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.
