The First Word Podcast - 2018 Venice Film Festival Recap, feat. Anton Volkov
by Alex Billington
September 10, 2018
This latest episode of our The First Word podcast is a special episode recorded from Venice discussing the Venice Film Festival and a few of the films that premiered there at the beginning of the festival. The 75th Venezia just wrapped up this weekend, but earlier at the festival after the first weekend, Alex connected with Anton Volkov for a chat about their time in Venice. They discuss early thoughts on Damien Chazelle's First Man, Alfonso Cuarón's Roma, Yorgos Lanthimos's The Favourite, and Rick Alverson's The Mountain. We also discuss our experiences at the festival and the history of it. This special episode only features Alex and Anton, as Mike is busy working on his documentary back in Chicago. Tune in below for our Venice chat.
