It's Not Just Me Director Jonathan Messer Interview - The Last New Wave

Ah, it's been one whole year since The Last New Wave started and even though I'm a few days late, I wanted to celebrate that milestone with an interview that I absolutely loved doing. This interview is with the director of the documentary It's Not Just Me Jonathan Messer, a documentary about four transgender men in Perth and their journey transitioning from female to male. It's a fantastic documentary that is making up 50% of Jonathan's PhD. It had a couple of packed screenings at this years Revelation Film Festival, which is where I thankfully caught it. It's definitely one of the best documentaries of the year.

Even if you didn't manage to catch the film, this interview is still worth listening to. When I started The Last New Wave, I had wanted to cover Australian cinema with all its different genres. I'd hoped I'd eventually be able to interview people along the way and talk about their films, and sure enough, I've been lucky enough to do just that. Being able to sit down and talk about Jonathan's documentary with him has been one of the best experiences I've had with The Last New Wave and is definitely the reason why I love doing this podcast. If you've joined me on this journey, then thank you!
