New Podcast: Wim Wenders' Far Away, So Close
The new podcast is now available on iTunes under Gendering the Media with Brikena Ribaj as well as in here.
This piece was first conceptualized a while back while under the active influence of the philosophical movement of existentialism. I have always been a fan of Wim Wenders' cinematography because I always felt a sense of affinity with his work and his implementation of existentialism. The text of this podcast is also my first published co-authored article. I find this to be an oldie but a goodie, for the most part.
The cinematic text I'm reading closely is the 1993 German film In Weiter Ferne, so nah!, i.e., Far Away, So Close!.
It's another contribution to modernity, I suppose.
You can listen to the piece here.
