In a new feature to Aesthetic Magazine, we are proud to announce that we are the new presenting partner for Toronto-based film podcast Contra Zoom. Your host, Dakota Arsenault, goes in depth about everything film; from lists, to reviews, and more!
Continuing our series celebrating cinema from around the world. On this episode we look at live action Japanese films, from Seven Samurai and Godzilla, to Ringu and House up to Shoplifters. We gush about Akira Kurosawa, Yasujirō Ozu, Kenji Mizoguchi, Hirokazu Koreeda and others. Joining me on the show is Naomi Wada Platt, who guested on episode 130: imagineNATIVE, a YouTuber who often covers Japanese culture and politics in both English and Japanese language videos. Look forward to part two coming in a few weeks!
