The Story of Film: An Odyssey, Part 10
Directed by Mark Cousins • Documentary • With Terence Davies, Bernardo Bertolucci, Jane Campion, Baz Luhrmann, Lars von Trier, Gus Van Sant • 2012 • 61 minutes
This is the story of the movies that tried to change the world in the 70s. We start in Germany with Wim Wenders, head to Britain in the 70s and talk exclusively to Ken Loach, travel to Italy, see the birth of new Australian cinema, and then arrive in Japan, which was making the most moving films in the world. Even bigger, bolder questions about film were being asked in Africa and South America, and the story ends with John Lennon's favorite film, the extraordinary, psychedelic The Holy Mountain.
