This week on A Place For Film, we have 4 time guest Ben Helmrich back to talk about the films and style of up and coming filmmaker, Cathy Yan. Cathy Yan is best known for her 2020 film, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and now (after years of distribution woes) her 2018 debut Dead Pigs. Elizabeth, David and Ben go deep into all the emerging thematic and stylistic choices Yan has developed in just two films. David and Elizabeth even take some to delve into the Scorsese and "old film" discourse that has left the internet in shambles this week. It's a thicc ep, and we hope you enjoy it!
You can stream Cathy Yan's Dead Pigs exclusively on one of Martin Scorsese's favorite streaming services: Mubi
