Blade Runner 2049

This 2017 sequel to the 1982 original won Academy Awards for Achievement in Cinematography and in Visual Effects, but is much more than a great looking science fiction film. Like the original, it wrestles with questions of identity, the definition of humanity and personal agency – all relevant to today’s real world issues. My guest Mimi Reid and I talk about some of these questions in a conversation that I hope you enjoy.

In our conversation, I referenced a quote from Maria Bustillos’ piece in Medium, and you can reach my guest Mimi’s dog jacket site at
