In this episode of The Pivot, we chat with Toronto-based actor and writer Nicole Nwokolo.
As a society, we have spent considerable time lamenting the brutal impact the coronavirus has had on specific sectors – and there’s a lot to lament. One key industry that has been reeling is the arts and entertainment industry. The television and movie production sectors in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal have been dormant since March. Theaters have been empty, and actors have nowhere to perform, let alone audition, and we’re all the poor, emotionally and intellectually, as a result.
Tune in to hear actor and writer Nicole Nwokolo discuss the current landscape of the film industry, along with systemic racism and navigating her career in the midst of the pandemic.
