Film Journals #5 – YouTube: The New French New Wave

It’s easy to nit-pick at the flaws of YouTube videos and label them as “trashy” or “low production value”. But in this episode, we will compare YouTube’s history to that of the French New Wave and realise that… YouTube could actually be the French New Wave of our age.



Film journals – a series by Jian Wei, highlighting the lessons and insights gained from his film journey and experience.

In each episode we will dissect different topics in film from its technical and cinematic aspects to the age-old debate of propagandistic Hollywood and even more current topics relating to YouTube, streaming services and online docu-series.
