This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a special conversation from the 27th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema with Claire Denis and Jim Jarmusch.

Claire Denis, the singular cinematic visionary behind Beau Travail (NYFF37), Let the Sunshine In (NYFF55), and High Life (NYFF56), returned to Film at Lincoln Center with this year’s Rendez-Vous with French Cinema Opening Night selection Both Sides of the Blade, a searing and unsparing romantic drama. Denis sat down with longtime friend and fellow filmmaker Jim Jarmusch—an icon of the American independent filmmaking landscape, and the official Guest of Honor at the 2022 edition of the festival—for an extended conversation about their decades-spanning careers.

Claire Denis’s Both Sides of the Blade is now playing in our theaters.

Jim Jarmusch’s Mystery Train, a boozy and beautiful pilgrimage to Memphis, plays for free at Lincoln Center’s Hearst Plaza on July 14.
