World Of Wongie July 2017 - A Ghost Story

So the WoW podcasts are gonna be a semi-regular thing now! Outside of the film festivals that I attend, I'll be posting whenever there's some interesting stuff to talk about as I experience them myself. Recently I was invited to visit A Ghost Store in conjunction with the wonderful movie A Ghost Story (dir: David Lowery) and was surprised to see the director there checking out the surreal shop that custom makes Ghost sheets for you to inhabit. I grabbed him for a few minutes and tried not to fanboy him too much since I was a big fan of the movie. We did manage to talk about our mutual love of the Hirokazu Koreeda classic film Afterlife, David's favorite shot from the movie (cause it sure is beautiful to look at) and his beliefs on death itself. All that in 4 mins yo! Thanks for listening and please follow me here or on itunes for new episodes when I make them!
