Episode 30: Cafe Lumiere

This is the second in a three part series of podcasts looking at the “Big Three” of the Taiwanese New Wave (the first on Edward Yang is here).  In this episode, Marc Saint-Cyr of the Toronto JFilm Pow-wow again joins us for a look at the introspective cinema of Hou Hsiao-Hsien whose Cafe Lumiere (2003) is the subject of our feature film discussion.  Also included is talk about Gaspar Noe, the Romanian New Wave, Ozu, and more on our coverage plans for the New York Asian Film Festival, Japan Cuts, and Shinsedai Cinema Festival.
