Dr. Eric Pierson Talks About Film on The San Diego Union-Tribune's Name Drop San Diego Podcast

Abby Hamblin and Kristy Totten of The San Diego Union-Tribune interview Dr. Eric Pierson on their podcast Name Drop San Diego about "how what we watch will tell future generations who we are."

"Movies are about so much more than what you see on the screen. The cultural and historical context of all movies — from the big Hollywood blockbusters to the smallest independent films — cannot be ignored when watching. That’s a message University of San Diego communications and film studies professor Eric Pierson shares in his classes and on this episode of Name Drop San Diego. He says that looking at the way people entertain themselves in a particular place or time in history is essential to understanding who they are as human beings."
