On this week’s episode of our podcast, we’re sharing a Q&A with rock legend Iggy Pop and director Jim Jarmusch about the documentary Gimme Danger, which chronicles the rise of Iggy Pop’s band, The Stooges. After that, we’ll go to our press conference from the New York Film Festival premiere of Things to Come, the new film from French director Mia Hansen-Løve starring Isabelle Huppert. Both films are now playing in select theaters.
The Stooges blended rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz for an aggressive and powerful sound that inspired the punk and alternative rock movements to come. With Gimme Danger, iconic director Jim Jarmusch gives context to the rise of what he calls the greatest rock band of all time. On opening night of the film’s run here at the Film Society, both Jarmusch and Pop joined us for a Q&A.
In Things to Come, Isabelle Huppert plays Nathalie, a high school philosophy teacher who’s forced to reinvent her life after her husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. The film screened in the Main Slate of the 54th New York Film Festival last October, and Huppert and director Mia Hansen-Løve joined us for a press conference before the NYFF premiere.
