Contra Zoom Pod Bonus Episode: AODR Festival

Interview with Benjamin Belloir of 'Beautiful Stranger'

On this bonus episode, I am sharing my interview with Benjamin Belloir, director of the new film Beautiful Stranger for the Academy of Death Racers Festival. Beautiful Stranger is a queer short about a man who experiences a sudden break up and decides to try his luck on a dating app despite his hesitations. I was asked to film a Q&A with Benjamin to appear alongside the film’s screening. Feel free to either watch the movie first or to listen to the interview here beforehand.

To watch Beautiful Stranger and everything else at the AODR Festival, you can purchase a run of engagement ticket for only $5. Watch the AODR Fest trailer HERE.
