November's Cinema podcast highlights just a few of this month's much anticipated new releases and a season of playful reflections on what it means to be a witch in film.
This month Mark Cosgrove (Watershed Cinema Curator) and Tara Judah (Watershed Cinema Producer) are joined by MA Curation student Thea Berry to talk about Reclaiming the Witch. This season of films explores all manner of sorceress-on-screen outings to laugh at and wonder – why is it that some women were represented that way?
Alongside this they explore a clutch of highly anticipated new releases from the likes of Japanese master filmmaker Koreeda with Shoplifters, artist turned filmmaker Steve McQueen's remake of 80s tv classic Widows, and much loved Mike Leigh's latest historical drama Peterloo. If that weren't enough they wave a flag for some of the must sees at Afrika Eye – a celebration of African cinema and culture which returns to Watershed this month.
