Alyson and Pamela Ribon (screenwriter of Moana, Ralph Breaks the Internet, novelist, comic book writer, actor, all-around creative force) talk about the short animated film she wrote and created that is now shortlisted for an Oscar, My Year of Dicks.
They talk about dicks, metaphorical ones and penis ones. They laugh, of course they do. And they also talk about how Pamela’s body of work, and this film in particular, capture experiences almost all of us have and yet, it’s a rare thing to see a film about it.
It’s a joyous and insightful conversation.
Come have a listen!
