We’re breaking convention to do things a little backwards this month. Let us explain. Before we had confirmed a guest or filmmaker for this month, it was announced that director Asghar Farhadi would be unable to enter the United States to attend the Oscars ceremony – he is once again nominated, by the way – […]

O’Brien On Loach

We really didn’t plan it this way, but it did work out pretty well. After all, could there by a more appropriate month for us to discuss the films of one of the most political directors in the canon? Sometimes you’re blessed with synchronicity. Apart from the charged politics, this is unlike any episode of […]

Spong On Lean

Hyphenates has always been a show that celebrates all filmmakers, and we’re equally excited by the big names as we are by the obscure ones.

Moorhouse On Roeg

There are few things more exciting to us than getting to hear a filmmaker we admire talk about the filmmaker who influenced them.
