Do you love movies? Maybe you’ll love the history of movies as well. Learn about The Foreign Wave with Ministry of Cinema!

In this episode we discuss the Foreign Wave, a renaissance of global filmmaking. We introduce radical innovations in film editing and plot that transformed cinema forever.

Spotlights include Andre Bazin, French film essayist and champion of some of film’s most influential theories, including the notion of director as auteur. We also highlight Akira Kurosawa’s epic Seven Samurai.
