Before writer, producer, and director Roxanne Benjamin was making V/H/S shorts or directing shows like Nancy Drew and The New Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, she was a disaffected youth who was so recognizable as a Daria that classmates called her by the famous MTV character’s name. Now, she joins us fresh off the streaming release of her new movie, There’s Something Wrong With the Children, to talk about relating to Daria, finding a place in the world of horror and filmmaking in general, and some other stuff ’80s/’90s kids love.
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.
