Aftersun podcast director Charlotte Wells & editor Blair McClendon
October 20th 2022

Aftersun director Charlotte Wells and editor Blair McClendon visit Screen Slate HQ to talk about the remarkable new film, opening this weekend from A24. We get into the genesis of the father-daughter story, casting the fantastic young actress Frankie Corio, how for a certain generation MiniDV is the look of childhood memories, and constructing a turn-of-the-millennium period piece without overplaying it. Plus Wells and McClendon discuss the needle drops that did and didn’t make it into the film, and Blair ignites beef with Liam Gallagher.
