Scannain Podcast - #17 - 2019

May 3, 2019 @ 9:46 pm

It's time for the Scannain podcast!

This week, Darren Mooney, Jay Coyle, Grace Duffy and Ronan Doyle discuss the week in film. Ronan has been away for a few weeks at the Irish Film Institute's "Our Battle in Images" season, looking at (largely outside) perspectives of the Troubles and curated by Donal Foreman, and so discusses a few films that he saw as part of the season. Jay has been watching more Columbian noir on the Criterion Channel and took in the latest Liam Neeson action joint Hard Powder Cold Pursuit. Grace watched Colossal and took in her first Agnés Varda film. Darren watched The Dig and took in a couple of classic Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

In film news, there's a lot to cover, including the passing of director John Singleton. There is also the IFI Spotlight coming in early May and the announcement of the latest batch of W.R.A.P. funding.
