The Story of Film: An Odyssey - Part 3
Chapters 7-9: European New Wave, New Directors, New Forms, and American Cinema of the '70s. We discover how French filmmakers planted a bomb under the movies and see how this "new wave" swept across Europe and all around the world. We discover the films of Roman Polanski, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Nagisa Oshima. Paul Schrader reveals his thoughts on his existential screenplay for Taxi Driver, Robert Towne explores the dark ideas in Chinatown, and Charles Burnett talks about the birth of Black American cinema.
