THE COLLISION: Episode 63 – Separating Art from the Artist

     November 3, 2013

This week on The Collision, the release of Ender’s Game has prompted us to talk about separating art from the artist.  For those who don’t know, the movie is based on a book by homophobic author Orson Scott Card.  We discuss the purpose and effectiveness of boycotting the movie, and then we expand the conversation to include controversial filmmakers like Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, and Mel Gibson as well as controversial films like Birth of a Nation and Triumph of the Will.  I think this is one of the best episodes we’ve done thus far, and I hope you’ll give it a listen.  As always, we finish with our recommendations.
