Legendary filmmaker Abel Ferrara (Ms. 45, King of New York, Bad Lieutenant, 4:44: Last Day On Earth) will be joined by Sean Baker (Tangerine, The Florida Project) to discuss Ferrara’s deeply personal and formally inventive new film Tommaso, now playing in the FLC Virtual Cinema.

About the Film:
Abel Ferrara’s first dramatic feature since 2014’s Pasolini reteams the filmmaker with frequent collaborator Willem Dafoe, who delivers a career-best performance as the titular Tomasso, an older American expat living in Rome with his young wife and their daughter. Disoriented by his past misgivings and subsequent, unexpected blows to his self-esteem, Tommaso wades through this late chapter of his life with an increasingly impaired grasp on reality as he prepares for his next film. Tommaso is easily Ferrara and Dafoe’s most personal and engrossing collaboration to date, a delicately surrealistic work of autofiction marked by the keen sensitivity of two consummate artists.
