Criterion Reflections – Episode 48 – Jan Troell’s The Emigrants

Criterion Reflections is David Blakeslee’s ongoing project to watch all of the films included in the Criterion Collection in chronological order of their original release. Each episode of this third season of the podcast features conversations with a variety of guests offering insights on movies that originally premiered in 1971 and were destined to eventually bear the Criterion imprint. In this episode, David is joined by Trevor Berrett and Josh Hornbeck to discuss The Emigrants, directed by Jan Troell.
