This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a special talk between Juliette Binoche and Déborah Lukumuena from the 27th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, moderated by FLC programmer Maddie Whittle.
Rendez-Vous with French Cinema continues to play in our theaters through Sunday. Explore the lineup and get tickets here.
In a Rendez-Vous lineup that features an abundance of extraordinary performances from women, two names stand out: Juliette Binoche, a much-acclaimed icon of French and international cinema, anchoring new films from directors Claire Denis (Fire) and Emmanuel Carrère (Between Two Worlds); and Déborah Lukumuena, a singular talent and rising star who embodies the best of a new generation of young French actors, performing opposite Gérard Depardieu in Constance Meyer’s Robust. Their conversation explores the two women’s professional trajectories and creative influences, their philosophies and priorities in selecting new projects, and their respective relationships with the American film industry.
