This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we preview our upcoming Patricia Mazuy retrospective with programmer Madeline Whittle. She discusses the French director’s singular filmography, which will be presented starting this Friday with free screening of Travolta and Me followed by The King’s Daughters, starring Isabelle Huppert, and continuing through Sunday with the director in person. See showtimes and get tickets here, plus save with 3+ film package.
Then we go to a special conversation from our members-only sneak preview of Dark Waters, featuring writer-director Todd Haynes and actor-producer Mark Ruffalo. In the thrilling drama, inspired by a shocking true story, Ruffalo plays a tenacious attorney who uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths to one of the world’s largest corporations. They duo discuss not over-dramatizing this true story, challenging systems of power, Ed Lachman’s cinematography, and more.
