Cinemallennials with Dave Lewis
This episode features a joyful conversation with Dave Lewis talking about making the Cinemallennials podcast, his love of movies and history, and his Irish-American heritage. We go into why Cinemallennials focuses on both millennials and the classical era of Hollywood film-making and what is gained from keeping older films alive, including forming better understandings of more contemporary works of cinema, for example Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (2021). We also talk about the importance of unearthing erased film histories with mention of early African-American film pioneer Oscar Micheaux.Find Dave’s film reviews and podcast links at https://dlewmoviereview.comDave’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/davelewis67Audiovisual Cultures YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClfY05rl3tFNav-2ehQvHcAFind out more about host Paula BlairRecorded using Zoom on 2 November 2021.Music: commonGround by airtone (c) copyright 2018 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial (3.0) license.

Remembering Sally Madge

Featured in order of appearance are Alexandra Hughes and Ditte Elly Goard, Simon Murray, Richard James Hall, Claire Ward, Adam Phillips and Joe Woodhouse, Ruth Scott Blackson, Ilana Mitchell, Paula Blair, Sandra Johnston, and Michael Tucker. Great thanks go to Sally’s close friend and companion Tom Jennings who made these recordings possible. We are just a few of the souls enriched by Sally’s curiosity and interest in us.
