This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast we’re featuring a special discussion from the 58th New York Film Festival about filmmakers around the world breaking boundaries and inventing new international canons. Featuring directors Dea Kulumbegashvili (Beginning), Chaitanya Tamhane (The Disciple), Philippe Lacôte (Night of the Kings), and members of The Living and the Dead Ensemble (Ouvertures), moderated by NYFF Talks programmer and Co-Deputy Editor of Film Comment, Devika Girish.
The filmmakers touched upon their varied experiences of cinema while growing up, the particularities of making films in their home countries and navigating the festival circuit in the West, and the importance of both specificity and universality in their cinematic visions.
See Beginning, The Disciple, Night of the Kings, and Ouvertures, along with over 30 other NYFF58 selections, at Film at Lincoln Center’s theaters during Big Screen Summer: NYFF58 Redux. Get tickets here.
