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.
