German Film Festival featuring Claire Burger and ‘Interview With A Vampire’

For this program, we looked at the latest iteration of a revamped vampire classic from Anne Rice and also celebrated the return of the German Film Festival in Melbourne this May and June. We were joined by special guest Claire Burger, the acclaimed French film screenwriter and director whose latest film ‘Langue Étrangère’ is screening direct from the Berlinale and is the centrepiece film for this year’s German Film Festival.

We also did a deep dive into the fascinating history of ‘Interview With A Vampire’ in the lead up to the second season of the television adaptation coming to AMC from May 12. We discussed the original novel by Anne Rice from 1976 that went on to a successful but controversial film adaptation in the 1990’s, then on to the current television series that commenced in 2022. This latest version has embraced the original storyline of the intense relationship between Louis and Lestat and new characters in season 2 that directly explore the very queer world that they now inhabit in and around the Théâtre des Vampires in Paris and across Prague and New Orleans.
