The Story of Film: An Odyssey - Part 5
Chapters 13-15: New Boundaries: World Cinema in Africa, Asia, Latin America, New American Independents & The Digital Revolution, and Cinema Today and the Future. World cinema in the 90s enters a golden age. The story starts in Iran, where we meet Abbas Kiarostami, who rethought movie making. Then the English-speaking world introduces us to new kinds of brilliant, playful movies, epitomized by Tarantino’s dialogue and the edge of the Coen brothers. Finally, we plunge into the digital world to see how it changed the movies forever and go beyond the present, to look at film in the future.
