“The Present” Deserves an Oscar

Palestinian-British filmmaker Farah Nabulsi talks about the making of “The Present,” which was nominated for the 93rd Academy Awards in the Best Live Action Short Film category. 

Jess and Jamal discuss Emmanual Macron’s government’s anti-Muslim rhetoric as the French presidential elections approach. They also talk about the trial of Derek Chauvin who knelt on George Floyd’s neck and ignored Floyd’s cries for help for over nine minutes leading to his death. The landmark trial is set to be a defining moment in the nation’s reckoning over race and policing.
