Part 13: The Last Days of Celluloid before The Coming of Digital 2011

70 mins United Kingdom Director. Mark Cousins

Cinema enters an unexpected high point in the 1990s. The story starts in Iran with Abbas Kiarostami, who made movie making more real. Then comes Shinya Tsukamoto, pioneer of bold new Japanese horror cinema. Mark Cousins then moves to Paris where one of the world’s greatest directors, Claire Denis, talks exclusively about her work, before we witness the blossoming of Mexican films.
