Today on Resonance FM:
Lucky Cat: The films of Tetsuya Nakashima
For a change, I’m a guest on someone else’s show today and along with cartoonist Dan Lester, who supplied a comic strip review of ‘Kamikaze Girls / Shimotsuma monogatari’ to the most recent issue of Electric Sheep Magazine, we’re discussing with host Zoe Baxter, the films of Tetsuya Nakashima, director of ‘Memories of Matsuko / Kiraware Matsuko no isshô’.
‘Lucky Cat’ is Resonance FM’s weekly show about Asian Culture and also includes Zoe’s selection of Asian music that’s caught her interest recently and live food tasting from her home made ‘Dim Sum Lunch Box’ (an item that has featured cameos by Alex Fitch in the past!)…
