Revolutions in Movies 1: American & French Revolutions (ft. Footnoting History)
Revolutions are some of history's most dramatic events and have entered our collective psyche, and mostly - the story each collective is trying to tell about itself. These stories are also told through movies, and in this first instalment of Revolutions in Movies we are going to focus on the American Revolution (via The Patriot, 2000) and the French Revolution (via Les Miserables, 2012, which depicts a failed revolution that came after the original one).
Gil and Rutger are happy to have on the show the two wonderfully smart and engaging Elizabeth Keohane-Burbridge and Christine Caccipuoti from the wonderful history podcast Footnoting History. Check them out here https://www.footnotinghistory.com. Next week we'll post the second instalment, about the Russian Revolution (via Doctor Zhivago, 1965) and the Chinese Communist Revolution (via The Last Emperor, 1987).
