In this month’s podcast we review Alexander Payne’s new film The Descendants. The film has plenty of award buzz surrounding it at the moment so we’ll also discuss our Oscar predictions. We’ll hear from Samantha Donnelly, the artist behind our new exhibition Contour States in Galleries 2 & 3. Exposures – the UK’s biggest festival of student film and moving image takes place later in the month so we will give you a mini guide to the festival. And not forgetting our round up of cultural pursuits at Cornerhouse and beyond taking place in February.
