Charla de Cine S01E25 - Vivarium de Lorcan Finnegan (2019)

Charla De Cine: un podcast de todo el CINE y TELEVISIÓN que quieres ver!

Hola a todos y bienvenidos a un nuevo episodio del podcast de Charla de Cine. Hoy nos vamos a Irlanda a hacer contacto con este drama existencialista con fuertes ribetes surrealistas que nos propone su director y guionista, Lorcan Finnegan. Un trabajo que definitivamente no va por los carriles arquetípicos y que puede no ser un estilo para todos los paladares, pero una película que definitivamente hace trabajar las neuronas y nos obliga a tomar situaciones y diálogos con una importante filosófica para analizar y desmenuzar. Ojalá la vean y opinen sobre vuestra percepción de cómo está planteada y desarrollada la historia. Muchas gracias y hasta la próxima.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/charladecine/message

Lorcan Finnegan - Vivarium, Modern Society, and The Cycle of Life

Through Conversations

Today Lorcan Finnegan Joins me. Lorcan is  a Director and a writer. His new film VIVARIUM premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 in competition at Critic’s Week and won The Gan Foundation Distribution Award.Vivarium has been described as one of the best sci-fi, psychological drama movies by many viewers. Vivarium explores many ideas surrounding the human cycle of life, modernity and the disconnection with nature, and how outside expectations influence our decisions which in turn shape our lives. Featuring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, a couple trying to find a new place to live, Vivarium works perfectly as a metaphor on how our current society behaves. As you will listen, I loved this movie and speaking with Lorcan was a very amazing experience. Hope you go watch Vivarium as soon as you finish this episode (warning: spoilers ahead). ---Website - https://lorcanfinnegan.com--- Highlights —2:24 The inspiration behind Vivarium.6:06 Are we living in Vivarium?8: 55 The paradox of happiness.14:30 Are we connected to our community?
