Well, it has certainly been a long time coming, but the fourth episode of Syndromes and a Cinema is finally online and available for you now.
On this episode we talk about the Remodernist Film Manifesto with Jesse Richards, who wrote the manifesto. We also talk about the soon to be released film In Passing, an omnibus film that was contributed to by seven directors (Heidi Beaver, Christopher Michael Beer, Dean Kavanagh, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Roy Rezaäli, Peter Rinaldi and Kate Shults) and which was made according to the manifesto.
We also had forum members Odi and Kai White join us this time as well.
We’re sorry it’s coming so late as we had some technical difficulties to overcome, but Cecil has taken pains to solve for them in the editing, and we hope you enjoy the result. Please let us know what you think here and/or in the comments section on the podcast page.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
Great job guys on your work on getting this episode out despite the tech issues!
YAY! Going to listen to it today, man that seemed ages ago, so glad you could resolve the tech issues and make it available — you guys rock! :)
It was Cecil—I couldn’t get my file to work.
you’re in the podcast, odi? i’ll be sure to check it out!
Yes, I participated – it was fun! :D
Listened to a bit of the podcast before work and found it very interesting. I came across the manifesto a little while back and found it to be a very liberating document. I’ve always had similar ideals in the way I perceive the cinema should be, however I find that the restriction to the use solely of super 8 mm and 16 mm to be a bit much. And of course I see that there have been a few specific exceptions to that particular point in the manifesto. Given that there are exceptions and knowing that this leaves out hordes of very interesting filmmakers, why is particular point included? Maybe it’s touched on in the podcast so I’ll have to finish once I get off work.
Yes we discuss that Tommy.
It came out great, CW — I just listened to it!
Ok cool. I hated only listening to just a bit but I really wanted to start it. I didn’t realize how much time I had.
Just thought you would like to know that the Remodernism episode of Syndromes and a Cinema is our most popular episode yet. More downloads by far than any other in a similar timeframe, and it’s only been posted since Wednesday.
One thing that we’re seriously lacking, though, is FEEDBACK! We would love to hear what you think of, not just the discussion, but the films/directors.
C’mon, Mubi! Since when have you not had an opinion of something?
That’s great to hear, House! :)
Here is my feedback:
I loved the Ming Liang Tsai’s episode and i’m looking foward to a part2. But i would not complain if you guys made an episode about Apichatpong instead.
Same here, but we wouldn’t want to be too predictable, would we? :)
I won’t yet reveal the subject of our next episode but I will say that there is room a plenty.
my girlfriend posted on the Syndromes and Cinema fb page that you guys should consider doing a show on bruno dumont’s output. i second her!
Your continued interest is awesome—thanks for that.
One of our charter members has left us, much like a Spinal Tap drummer (though I hope he returns soon), and another is taking care of some personal items.
But we very much want to continue doing this, so it’s only a matter of time.
Just want to let you know that thanks to this podcast, I am considering checking out Syndromes and a Century from my local library soon. I hear that it’s minimalist, but I’m beginning to appreciate it as a style (Uncle Boommee used it to great effect during the first 20 minutes, but I have to finish it soon. Life gets in the way sometimes.)
Keep up the good work.
Ha, I haven’t even seen Syndromes and a Century even though our podcast is obviously named from it.
Yeah like House said, myself and him are hoping to continue the podcast, hopefully with some other folks, but some people have just been going through some transitions here that have caused a little sabbatical.
The links should all be active again if you want to listen to any past shows. We are planning on airing some new ones in the future.
Feel free to like us on Facebook
Cool, will like.
Looking foward to new episodes.
We have our own new URL too
We’ve just decided to focus our next podcast on Sharon Lockhart, so watch some of her films and stay tuned. Should be up in about a month.
It has been a month now. :)
Well… now it has been 3 months. :(
I’m very happy to announce that we just finished recording our next podcast and will be editing it and posting very soon.
The topic is Queer Cinema, and we covered these films:
Funeral Parade of Roses
This time Riss and I were joined by Max Slobodin!
We will either discuss our picks for the Director’s Cup or Garbage Collectors in Cinema ;)
