2000 Academy Award Nominees for Best Actor and Best Actress, 2001. Ink on board. Collection of The Al Hirschfeld Foundation

We’ll look at the lasting effects of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, not just on the city’s infrastructure, but on its racial, social, and psychological makeup. Then, Jake Johnson from the TV show “New Girl” tells us about his new film, “Digging for Fire,” along with director Joe Swanberg. Louise Kerz Hirschfeld and curator David Leopold talk about the work of her late husband, the great caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. Comedian Paul Scheer talks about his various projects, including his new special, called “Crash Test.” And, we’ll talk about why there's so little dialogue spoken by people of color in most movies.
