The Story of Film: An Odyssey - Part 4
Chapters 10-12: Movies To Change The World, The Arrival of Multiplexes and the Asian Mainstream, and Protest in Film. This is the story of the movies that tried to change the world in the 70s. We start in Germany, head to Britain, travel to Italy, see the birth of new Australian cinema, and then arrive in Japan. We see how Star Wars, Jaws and The Exorcist created the multiplexes and then travel to India to show how Bollywood was doing new things. Then American director John Sayles talks about how filmmakers spoke truth to power in the 1980s.
