The Independent Film Festival Boston is underway with screenings at the Somerville, Brattle and Coolidge Corner Theaters, and at WBUR’s CitySpace.

On Sunday, local documentary director Lucia Small premieres her film "Girl Talk," exploring "the cutthroat, male-dominated world of high school debate, where tomorrow’s leaders are groomed."

Consider This cohost Steve Brown speaks with WBUR contributing arts reporter Erin Trahan, who explains how this film deepens Small's lifelong examination of the female experience.

This segment aired on April 28, 2022.
