About this program
During Freep Film Festival, Elvis Mitchell, who once was a film critic for the Detroit Free Press, will host a live recording of his radio show “The Treatment,” known for Mitchell’s interviews with some of the most influential people in arts, entertainment, sports and fashion. Mitchell’s guest will be legendary actor Laurence Fishburne, who appears in Mitchell’s debut film “Is That Black Enough for You?!?” and is an executive producer on another Freep Film Festival Film, “The Cave of Adullam,” about the Detroit-based training academy that holistically supports young Black men. The nationally syndicated show and popular podcast is produced by KCRW, NPR’s flagship station in Los Angeles, and airs on WDET in Detroit.
