Episode 455: The Seed of Man (1969)

Special Guest: Nicoletta Ercole
Guest Co-Hosts: Heather Drain, Kat Ellinger

It's less than two minutes to midnight on the Doomsday Clock. Our Eastern Neighbors are being quarantined from the corona virus. And here we are talking about the end of the world as shown in 1969 by director Marco Ferreri. The Seed of Man / Il seme dell'uomo stars Marzio Margine as Cino and Anne Wiazemsky as Dora, the only lovers left alive after a plague has wiped out most of the world's population. The two live in a seaside home where Cino has a museum of trivial objects. He feels that he has to repopulate the world but Dora has other ideas.

Heather Drain and Kat Ellinger join Mike to discuss the work of Marco Ferreri while special guest Nicoletta Ercole discusses her film Marco Ferreri: Dangerous But Necessary.
