Cinephile! This week’s episode of the Big FRED Tuesday features more interviews from this year’s edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
I Comete – A Corsican Summer is a choral fiction film about life in a Mediterranean resort on the island of Corsica. The film is directed by Pascal Tagnati and it received a special jury prize at the IFFR. I talked about it on this show with its actor Jean-Christophe Folly.
I also interviewed Félix Dufour-Laperrière about his animated poetic documentary Archipelago that poses itself the question of what makes a strip of land into a region, with references to the origins of his native Quebec. And director Nino Martinez Sosa talks about his Liborio, a film based on the life of the Dominican spiritual leader Papa Liborio.
I also take time to talk about the origins of the Berlinale, as its online edition if fast approaching, and share this week’s Popcorn Classic: King of Hearts by Philippe de Broca from 1966. Listen to the show via the player below.
