The Whale + Darren Aronofsky | Rotterdam Festival Report | Saint Omer | Knock at the Cabin + M Night Shyamalan | Black Girl (1966)

This week we’ve got a bumper episode to kick off a new era for the podcast where we’ll be talking to a host of exciting filmmakers, writers and actors. We look at Darren Aronofsky’s Brenaissance igniting film, The Whale, and LWLies Digital Editor Hannah Strong spoke to the director about his heart-breaking tale of a self-destruction. Next up is Alice Diop’s exquisite tragedy, Saint Omer. Things shift gears again for M Night Shyamalan’s taut apocalyptic thriller Knock at the Cabin, and Hannah Strong’s interview with the great man himself. If that wasn’t, enough David Jenkins reports on the highlights of the Rotterdam Film Festival. Finally, for Film Club we revisit Ousmane Sembéne’s 1969 masterpiece, Black Girl.

Joining host Leila Latif are LWLies contributors Lillian Crawford and Rogan Graham.
