Summer Festivals: In this show Alex Fitch interviews a trio of independent film directors whose latest movies have premiered at recent festivals. Presenting their films at the London Sundance Film Festival, Miguel Arteta talks about his film Beatriz at Dinner, a drama about class conflict and environmentalism featuring John Lithgow and Salma Hayek, while Michael Almereyda discusses his elegiac science-fiction movie Marjorie Prime, adapted from the play of the same name and starring Lois Smith and Tim Robbins. Plus, with translation by Jason Yu, Korean director Bong Joon-Ho talks about his latest film Okja, which proved controversial when it screened at Cannes in May, and features Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal in an uproarious tale of GM food.
The Electric Sheep Film Show is broadcast every third Wednesday of the month, 5.30-6.30pm at Resonance FM 104.4. Next date: Wednesday 19 July 2017.
