POP 88 #38 – Last Train Home

LAST TRAIN HOME - Reel Asian FundraiserAs promised, here are the first of three new episodes to make up for me getting busy/coming down with pneumonia.

It was a slight challenge getting a hold of Director Lixin Fan. After all, his prestigious award-winning documentary film Last Train Home had him being invited to festivals left, right and center — not bad for a Canadian film and a debut feature for this young director from China.

The podcast is, of course, the edited, film-focused version, but I’ll make the entire Skype interview (a full 30+ minutes) available, should people be interested. We went more into depth about the Zhang family as well as freedom of expression and censorship while working within China, and then we also talked about food and his thoughts upon landing in Toronto (Scarborough) when he first came.

About Xxxtine

The main Canuck here I (sometimes) give a different perspective. I used to be 'read only' but you can actually hear me via POP 88 on 8Asians podcasting sister site Popcast88.com. Always trying to find that right balance between fluff and substance, I tend to focus my interests in discovering different perspectives. Look forward to hearing (and perhaps seeing) things you wouldn't anywhere else. Current vice and embarrassingly obsessed with: Kpop group AFTER SCHOOL
