Exploring Frames On A Difficult Subject

Posted by

Jenny Rudolph provides a great example of an interviewer exploring frames on a difficult subject, slavery. Listen to NPR’s Rene Montagne’s advocacy plus inquiry and follow up skills as she interviews director Steve McQueen and British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays Solomon Northup, a kidnapped free man, forced into slavery.  The film, 12 Years a Slave, tells about the perils of plantation life and the inspiration the actor and director drew from Northup’s own words.
