Welcome and an international hello to all the listeners of the first episode of FOREIGN EXCHANGE CINEMA! For the debut episode, we’re going down to Mexico to talk about the 2001 film entitled Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN, and why college students — specifically dudes — should seek this as essential viewing, but to briefly mention why this is a great starting point to Mexican cinema. But before we head there, Hanajun is going to start the episode with a small introduction, as well as a few minutes about Shudder.com’s new documentary, HORROR NOIRE: A HISTORY OF BLACK HORROR
We have an all-timey, all-timer featured today as Hanajun heads to Japan to talk about one of the nation’s most impactful films: Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon.” Listen to Hanajun gush about the structure, history and filmography that all started with the 1950 masterpiece, hoping students not only check out more Japanese films, but maybe inspires them to take risks in their creative endeavors, especially with storytelling.
In addition, hear a few of Hanajun’s brief thoughts on the “Captain Marvel,” Netflix’s “Roma,” and the Mexican classic entitled “Los Olvidados,” directed by artist Luis Bunel.
