Good episode? Give it some love!
Today's episode is about Residue, the impressionistic debut from Merawi Gerima.

The award-winning film, which just premiered on Netflix, follows Jay, a young filmmaker who returns from Los Angeles to his hometown of Washington, DC and finds that white people are taking over his neighborhood, disrespecting the Black residents they're pushing out.

We talk about the challenging pace of the movie, its unconventional use of offscreen voices, and its complicated presentation of Jay's motivations.

Keith and Aaron also talk about their experiences with gentrification in Memphis, and Tim discusses his white interloping.

We almost talked about Cuties this episode and decided to do Residue instead. You're welcome, everybody.
