Podcast: French New Wave Movie Series
At the start of 2016, we knew there were some classic films and directors that we either needed to catch up with or get to know better. So, we started off the year in our first series diving into the rich filmography of Andrei Tarkovsky, which was a really great series, and now we are headed into the artistic world of the French New Wave. We’ll dive into both sides of the bank and try to cover as much ground as we can, including the works of Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Alain Resnais and Agnès Varda.
