Episode notes

Writer/director (and Chicago native) Minhal Baig’s newest film centers around Malik and Eric, two young kids going through the things young kids go through, with the added complications of life in the Cabrini Green housing projects of the ‘90s. Robert Daniels (another Chicagoan) is here to help us talk through it. Then, a Hall of Excellence update and a Hotline letter that inspires a plethora of short film recommendations!
