On a new episode of the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re excited to present a conversation with cult-favorite director Park Chan-wook.
Three decades into his feature filmmaking career, Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook—recipient of the Best Director award at last year’s Cannes Film Festival—made his New York Film Festival debut with Decision to Leave, an intricate Hitchcockian epic that both draws on familiar genres like the crime thriller and the melodrama and takes them in entirely new formal and psychological directions. We were thrilled to welcome Park to NYFF60 last October for a deep-dive conversation delving into his long and acclaimed career, his affinity for genre filmmaking, his artistic influences and inspirations, and the making of his latest feature.
For our event, Deep Focus: Park Chan-wook, the filmmaker spoke with film critic Farran Smith Nehme. Watch and listen below.
