Directed by Mark Cousins • Documentary • With Terence Davies, Bernardo Bertolucci, Jane Campion, Baz Luhrmann, Lars von Trier, Gus Van Sant • 2012 • 61 minutes
This part explores the story of sex and melodrama in the movies of the 50s. We discover James Dean, On the Waterfront and the glossy weepies of the time, but also travel to Egypt, India, China, Mexico, Britain and Japan to find that movies there were also full of rage and passion. Features exclusive interviews with the people who worked with Satyajit Ray, with legendary actress Kyoko Kagawa--who starred in films by Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, and the first great African director, Youssef Chahine.
