The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “The People’s Joker” Director/Writer/Star Vera Drew

The People’s Joker” had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, but its screenings were canceled due to “rights issues” related to its D.C. characters. The parody film has generated a ton of buzz in cinephile circles and is finally getting released from Altered Innocence in select theaters. Director, writer, and star Vera Drew was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about her experience making the film, what she wanted to communicate with it, how she was inspired by 2019’s “Joker,” its trans themes, and more. Enjoy, and please be sure to check out the film if you can. Thank you!
