We’re back from Cannes for day four of our series of podcasts on the cinematic goings-on on the Riviera. For today’s episode, Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold is joined by Brazil-based critic and FC contributor Ela Bittencourt. The two discuss the young Russian filmmaker Kantemir Balagov’s Beanpole, which tells the story of two young women navigating the ruins, both emotional and environmental, of post-War Leningrad. The two also return to Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’s Bacurau, discussed in our previous episode, and touch on Franco Lolli’s Litigante, a look at the trials and tribulations a single mother and lawyer living in Bogota, Colombia.
