The Film Programme - Jeremy Irons on Trashed; new Pierce Brosnan romcom Love Is All You Need

Film news. Francine Stock talks to Jeremy Irons about global waste documentary Trashed, and asks if films can really change the world. Plus Susanne Bier on reinventing the romcom.

This week the Film Programme debates whether films can really change the world. Francine Stock talks to Jeremy Irons about his documentary Trashed which looks at global waste and discusses the feature film Promised Land, starring Matt Damon and Frances McDormand, which tackles fracking. She asks Dave Calhoun, Film Editor of Time Out and Oli Harbottle of Dogwoof films if these films with a mission bring in the audiences.

The director Susanne Bier explains why she wanted to reinvent the rom com formula with her new film, Love is All You Need, starring Pierce Brosnan.

And we hear from the actor and director Mathieu Kassovitz about his new film Rebellion, based on real events in New Caledonia in 1988 when French soldiers controversially suppressed an uprising by Kanak separatists. Kassovitz, who made the critically-acclaimed La Haine, explains why Rebellion was a labour of love which caused heated reaction when released in France.

Producer: Elaine Lester.
