In this archive episode we return to an interview with actor and director Desiree Akhavan, speaking to her in detail about her film The Miseducation of Cameron Post.

Akhavan’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post is the follow up to her debut Appropriate Behaviour and is drawn from the 2012 Novel of the same name. 

Set in the 90s the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz as Cameron Post who finds herself after a post-prom outing in a christian gay conversion camp. She bonds with new outsider friends Jane Fonda, played by Sasha Lane, and Forest Goodluck, played by Adam Red Eagle. We met up with the director to discuss her film.
