Episode 6: Gateway To China Epics Special
Hope listeners have built up some anticipation because the Infant Island Podcast is about to go EPIC. Months in the preparation, join Mike & Jenny as they chat up two of their favorite, and earliest brushes with grand scale historical films centered on the colorful and tumultuous last century of China. From Bertolucci's Oscar winning giant, The Last Emperor, and rounding out with Chen Kaige's Cannes sensation, Farewell My Concubine! It's an imperial love fest as they examine both films, and seek out what led modern Chinese cinema to where it is now.
