Film show: A return to ‘Wakanda’


After the spectacular box office figures generated by “Black Panther” in 2018, the Marvel hit machine is hoping for similar success with its sequel “Wakanda Forever”. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us more about the franchise’s reach and the consequences for the industry overall. We also discuss “Riposte Féministe”, the French documentary following the militant groups pasting up slogans in public space to raise awareness about violence against women and systemic gender inequality. Finally, as James Gray’s “Armageddon Time” hits French screens, we take a look at this moving, thoughtful retelling of a Jewish childhood in Queens, New York on the eve of Ronald Reagan’s election.
