Filmmaker Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof, How To Make An American Quilt, A Thousand Acres, The Dressmaker) joins the show this month as we look back at some of the key releases of November 2016, including the new Marvel entry Doctor Strange, the Harry Potter prequel spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and DreamWorks Animation’s toy adaptation Trolls. They then look at what role cinema can take in the world following the results of this month’s US election: can films be a force for change, or will they simply be a coping mechanism? Then, Jocelyn takes Sophie and Lee through the career and works of the director who influenced her the most: English filmmaker Nicolas Roeg.
Film lecturer and life-long cinephile George Viscas joins the Hyphenates to talk to the films of January 2013, look at the criminally-short filmography of Elaine May, and examine the career of Italian maestro Luchino Visconti.
Author Christos Tsiolkas (Loaded, Dead Europe, The Slap) joins the Hyphenates to discuss the films of September 2011, debate the recent banning in Australia of the controversial movie A Serbian Film, and look at the extraordinary career of Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini.
