Jeffrey Overstreet and Medicine for Ailing America S1 E22

Today I am speaking with novelist, film critic, and teacher Jeffrey Overstreet.  We discuss the kind of films that we consider Medicine for Ailing America.  Jeffrey and I agree that healing starts with acknowledging the reality of the problem.  To become better we must acknowledge the truth of the past and become open to new possibilities in the present and future.  The main movies we discuss are Terrence Malick’s “The New World”, Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing”, and Wim Wenders “Wings of Desire”.
