Cinephile! Times are so busy, rough and tough that I barely have time to put short radio notes together. I bring you a couple of chats on this week’s show. One with my friend Thomas Quain about season 2 of his animated web series Poxy Bleedin Shop. It’s a dark comedy with tinges of surrealism, set in a sinister off license. Check it out!
The other about a new documentary about teenagers fleeing from war-torn countries, who see themselves as players in a game – one of the most dangerous ones at that. The documentary is called Shadow Game and won the top documentary prize at this year’s Geneva International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights, and I speak about it with its directors Eefje Blankevoort and Els Van Driel.
Aside from that, the recurring Dictionary of Film and Cinephile Classic segments also return. But I will refrain from giving away too much about those… you’ll have to listen to the show to find out what I have chosen for those this week. Gotta run! Chat soon!
