Simon Miraudo and Tristan Fidler from RTRFM’s ‘Movie Squad’ are joined by Chelsey O'Brien, Curator at ACMI, as they review and discuss Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as a foundation for contemporary storytelling in film.

The duo join us at Boola Bardip to consider Alice's journey as a blueprint for text-to-film adaptations, as well as some of the most influential films of our time — like The Matrix and Spirited Away and other oddities such as Inner Space, Don't Worry Darling, and more!

About Movie Squad & Chelsey O'Brien

Simon Miraudo and Tristan Fidler join Taylah Strano to review the latest movie trends every Friday morning on RTRFM as Movie Squad!

Tackling every genre type and topic, Simon, Tristan, and occasionally a special guest dive deep into the world of cinema from blockbuster extravaganzas to arthouse fare; from celluloid excellence to glorious trash!
