Event Audio: Benjamin Pearson, “Development Distribution? EU Aid, Film Distribution, and the Global South”

This is the fourth and final podcast installment featuring archival audio from the preconference event. Due to technical difficulties with the A/V system we weren’t able to record all of the day’s panels, but for posterity we’re dropping the presentations that were captured into this podcast feed. Sadly, the battery-operated microphones died out after the “Spreading the News” panel featured in the last installment. 
One of the mics, however, miraculously reanimated itself for a few minutes in the afternoon—long enough to capture exactly one presentation. It comes from Benjamin Pearson, who discussed a paper titled, “Development Distribution? EU Aid, Film Distribution, and the Global South.”

Event Audio: Introductory Panel

This is the first of four podcast installments featuring archival audio from the preconference event. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to capture audio of all of the day’s presentations. If you were there in San Diego, you’ll recall that the A/V system experienced a slow and painful death as the batteries in each of the wireless mics gave out. And while the venue was intimate enough that this didn’t much matter for the live presentations, it does mean that not everything was captured for posterity.
This first installment is the audio from the introductory panel, featuring (in order) Amanda Lotz, Josh Braun, and Ramon Lobato. Joe Turow also presented on this panel, but he stepped away from the microphone to present, so unfortunately his discussion of distribution and power role theory wasn’t captured.
