A bit late this week, but that’s because of some film work some of us got going on! Production schedules aside, check out the ninth episode of the only film podcast in Bahasa Malaysia! This episode has plenty of the New Waves in their sights, with Fikri and Muz discussing the granddaddy of them all, the French New Wave. They move on to Japan, Iran, Germany and Romania. Check out all the fun on the only podcast (definitely) that does not use up government funds to travel to these countries, despite having two government servants!
- What’s a wave and what does the French have to do with it?
- Check out Japan’s New Wave, featuring ‘Throw Away Your Books, Go Out Into the Streets’ by Shuji Terayama and ‘In The Realm of the Senses’ directed by Nagisa Oshima
- We popped over to check out the Iranian New Wave, starring the likes of Abbas Kiarostami and Majid Majidi, who made ‘Children of Heaven’
- Also, check out Kiarostami’s ‘Bread and Alley’
- New German Cinema has films like ‘The Tin Drum’ by Volker Schlondorff, more than ably supported by ‘Aguirre, the Wrath of God’ made by Werner Herzog, though the film’s probably more famous for this
- Let’s not forget Rainer Werner Fassbinder‘s ‘Ali: Fear Eats The Soul’
- The Romanian New Wave starred a number of filmmakers, such as Catalin Mitulescu, Radu Muntean and Cristian Mungiu
- Check out ‘4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days’, while we reviewed ‘The Paper Will Be Blue’
