Kyle Laursen’s short film Josiahtells a beautiful story of Hollywood’s unconscious stereotyping. The short examines the creative process that happens behind the closed doors of a casting room, and the power dynamics that are solely based on race, class and gender, portrayed through the performances of Kevin Dunn, Luke Forbes, Melanie Chandra, and Mather Zickel.

Last week, I got the opportunity to watch the short and watch the Q&A with director Kyle Laursen, Luke Forbes, Mather Zickel, Melanie Chandra, and the cinematographer Jenn Gittings that was moderated by Shaun Harper, the Founder and Executive Director of the USC Race and Equity Center.

Take a look.
