‘Joker’

Been a little busy as you may have heard, so just now seeing this. I’ve heard every reaction, positive and negative to this film, and in a way, I think everyone is right.

So you know what I’ve been involved with this summer. Now, hear myself and the other mentees talk about the shorts and why we feel attached to them. Enjoy!
