The trio talk about the bold adaptation process; how Norton balanced writing, acting, and directing; the uncertainty and risk of the project; how the film captures a changing New York City; working with cinematographer Dick Pope; and more.
When Varda died earlier this year at age 90, the world lost one of its most inspirational cinematic radicals. Listen to our tribute to Varda before her final film had its New York premiere in NYFF’s Main Slate and ahead of the most comprehensive retrospective to date of her career, beginning December 20 at Film at Lincoln Center.
The film takes a lively tour of New York’s book world, past and present, from the Park Avenue Armory’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair; to the Strand and Argosy book stores, still standing against all odds; to the beautifully crammed apartments of collectors and buyers.
On Day 8 of our New York Film Festival daily podcast, we begin with an introduction to our annual NYFF57 Shorts programs then go to a discussion with the director behind the decades-spanning Up series.
