The Story of Film: An Odyssey (E6) - Sex & Melodrama (2011)

Documentary, Captioned 1h 2m

Sex and melodrama fuelled ‘50s cinema, with James Dean, On The Waterfront and Douglas Sirk. Hollywood didn’t have the monopoly, as visits to Egypt, India, China, Mexico, Britain and Japan unearth movies full of rage and passion. Features exclusive interviews with Kyoko Kagawa - who starred in films by Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, and the first great African director, Youssef Chahine.
