W. Kamau Bell (United Shades of America, We Need to Talk about Cosby) has carved out his own, personalized niche in media, a blend of comedy, documentary, and education. His path didn’t always make sense to his peers, but he forged ahead because he felt that his mission was clear. That’s just one thing he has in common with Denzel Washington’s Eli from the underloved 2010 “post-apocalyptic neo-Western” The Book of Eli.
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.
