The Rereaders Episode 79: MIFF 2017 Special

August 15, 2017

In this week’s podcast we head to the Melbourne International Film Festival, sharing all manner of festival gossip and banter. First, we watch swooning Americano-Italiano love story Call Me by Your Name, based on the novel by André Aciman. Then, we roller-dance into funky Venice Beach of the 1970s and ’80s in the Australian-directed documentary, Roller Dreams. And finally, we remain in the landscape of American black civil rights with I Am Not Your Negro, Raoul Peck’s Oscar-nominated documentary portrait of writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin.
