    'a never-failing source of wonder to me' - Ian White on 'if....' and 'Mutiny in Heaven'

    'a never-failing source of wonder to me' - Ian White on 'if....' and 'Mutiny in Heaven'

    In this episode I am joined by the film-maker Ian White. We talk about his choice of film – ‘if….’ By Lindsey Anderson (1968) and his own new documentary ‘Mutiny in Heaven’ (2023) that chronicles the fascinating history
    of The Birthday Party, one of the most influential, brilliant, violent and possessed bands of the 1980s.

    We talk about matching form to subject, things that don’t
    exist anymore, the pleasures and pains of the digital and pre-digital worlds,
    the potential beauty of nihilism

    the cinema, streaming or to buy the DVD-

    Francis -Faoladh

    For a long time I have intended to make a film, this film,
    Francis, based on my feelings in relation to George Romero’s Martin. Martin is a vampire movie without a vampire but with a deep and deeply disquieting examination of religion, sex and culture. I loved Martin at first sight and instantly thought (felt) that the idea would make something wonderful about
    being Irish - and also a great werewolf movie.

    This is my version of that film. I spent a long time
    thinking I just would never have the resources to make it, except as a short story and that is indeed how it started, until I suddenly had the idea ‘Why not La Jetée the thing?’ I am not sure if ‘to La Jetée’ will catch on as a verb in
    English but let’s give it a try.

    It was made for basically nothing and I want those limitations
    to be part of the atmosphere – how else to capture that strange and intoxicating feeling of 70’s and 80’s exploitation cinema.

    It is the story of a young man who has a miserable life, a
    violent early death, and seems to be having at least as bad a time of it in the afterlife. But in the answer to the question of why this is all so horrible there is possibly something beautiful and rather life affirming…but you’ll need to dig that out for yourself.

    Into the blue again - Eric Geynes, The Big Blue and much more.

    In this episode I am joined by Eric Geynes on, sort of, the anniversary of the first ever episode of the show.
    Eric is an actor, writer, producer and all around story-teller.
    We discuss his career and the 1988 film 'The Big Blue'. The discussion takes us in lots of directions that I hope you will find interesting.
