#PopVultures Ep 21: Parasite and plagiarism controversies in film, TV and music
Synopsis: A podcast by The Straits Times that examines all the ins and outs of pop culture, be it Asian entertainment or Hollywood.
This week, the #PopVultures go deep on plagiarism – which this year’s Oscars Best Picture winner Parasite has been accused of.
The producer of a Tamil movie – 1999’s Minsara Kanna – alleged that the crux of Parasite was stolen from Minsara Kanna. The #PopVultures share their thoughts on the controversy.
They then move on to a conversation about the legal and illegal ways of borrowing and copying in film, television and music, and finally the philosophical question: Is all art ultimately derivative?
P.S. This episode contains actual music clips! Tune in and decide if Radiohead, Lizzo, Tanya Chua, and BTS have copied or have had their work copied!
