This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we preview our new series Relentless Invention: New Korean Cinema, 1996–2003, starting this Friday at Film at Lincoln Center and continuing through December 4. Grady Hendrix of Subway Cinema and FLC programmer Tyler Wilson discuss how a generation of filmmakers, from Bong Joon Ho to Park Chan-wook, created homegrown blockbusters that imbued the pleasures of pop cinema with a subversive, gleefully inventive approach to genre and a sharp sociopolitical edge.

Then, our season of Agnès Varda kicks off with her final film, Varda by Agnès this Friday, followed by the most comprehensive retrospective to date, beginning December 20. During the 57th New York Film Festival, Agnès’ daughter and producer Rosalie Varda joined us for a Q&A, moderated by programmer Florence Almozini, following a sold-out screening of her swan song. She discusses the emotional journey of making the film and how it’s a fitting farewell to the legendary filmmaker, told in her own words. See showtimes and get tickets here.
