November 2021 Cinema Podcast
November's Cinema Podcast celebrates a return of audiences to the cinema, renewed partnerships through the fantastic Afrika Eye film festival, and a season of films and discussions challenging Myth and Masculinity in the Western. Mark Cosgrove is joined by Annie Mentor, director Afrika Eye Festival and Lola McKinnon MA Curation Student.
Annie shares what Afrika Eye Film Festival is and what impassions it to explore multi-faceted Africa through film, culture and collaboration. Plus all the highlights from a rich programme of stories; of lives lived and lives imagined, created by remarkable filmmakers from Africa and the diaspora. Coming to Watershed 12-14 November.
As part of her placement Lola shares a little about life as an MA Curation Student, but more about her season exploring the new generation of female filmmakers from all over the world challenging the masculinist mythologies of the Western. And breathing new life into a genre synonymous with fistfights, gun-slingin’ and tough, white men.
