The Story of Film: An Odyssey (E13) - New Boundaries: World Cinema in Africa, Asia & Latin America (2011)
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.
