Welcome to MiniMeme, the podcast brought to you by Burn Media’s junior staff as they tackle the topics that tickle their fancy.
This week Julia Breakey and Matthew Alexander use Youth Day as a reason to discuss films that inspire them, the mouthpieces of South African youth.
No ad to show here.
Matthew comes to terms with his obsession with Will Smith, and the fact that the Taken actor’s name is, in fact, Liam Neeson.
Julia discusses films that have inspired her both as a woman and an aspiring filmmaker.
The team touches on the idea of identity, the depiction of mental health in film and TV, and the notion of the Rainbow Nation.
