Ava DuVernay's film A Wrinkle in Time has met with mixed reviews. The book the film adapts is both classic and beloved and also one of the most banned books in American schools and libraries due to Madeline L’Engle’s deeply Christian views on how faith and science can exist together. Not only does the film re-imagine those views from a lens of humanism, but in a first for Disney, the casting is color conscious. Our panel asks what is the importance of inclusion, self-awareness, and gender on audiences and critics? Our panel also discusses how the film portrays the nature of evil and asks - does the film has something to say about how to do good in the world given the polarization dominate in the current climate?
