July 2019 Cinema Podcast

Watershed's Cinema Curator Mark Cosgrove and Cinema Producer Tara Judah share their upcoming highlights in film for July. From the fantastic snapshot of what's happening with restorations, archive and rarities that is the Cinema Rediscovered festival; to new releases such as the gothic horror Midsommar, Jim Jarmusch's dead-pan zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die and the last film from feminist icon, pioneer and legendary French filmmaker Agnès Varda, Varda by Agnes.Cinema Rediscovered offers a great opportunity to dive a bit deeper into film culture and Mark and Tara's picks include a focus on the great British director Nick Roeg's incredible body of work from, Robert Bresson's rarely screened and highly under rated La Femme Deuce, a look at the influence of London's infamous Scala cinema which programmed both high art and low rent b-movies alongside each other, to the original cinema innovators of the Victorian era.
