On this week’s podcast, we’re sharing our NYFF Live panel discussion about the dynamics of collaboration, featuring Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan, and Mary Harron and John Walsh, and moderated by Karen Han.

Dano and Kazan collaborated on the script for Wildlife, which was a Main Slate selection in this year’s New York Film Festival and opens at the Film Society of Lincoln Center this week, with a special sneak preview and free talk this Thursday.

Harron and Walsh most recently collaborated on Dali Land, which is now in pre-production; the film follows a gallery assistant who helps Salvador Dalí prepare for a big show in New York. Harron and Walsh have previously co-written the shorts Armani, Sonnet for a Town Car, and Holding Fast.
