The director of the opening night selection of last year’s NYFF, the blistering documentary about institutionalized racism and mass incarceration in the U.S. 13TH, as well as I Will Follow (2010), Middle of Nowhere (2012) Selma (2014), and the much-anticipated A Wrinkle in Time (2018), the multi-talented Ava DuVernay is quickly becoming one of the essential figures in the contemporary American cinema landscape.
Beyond prolific, South Korean director Hong Sang-soo has presented new films in NYFF’s Main Slate for five years in a row. And this year, he has two new movies. Hong will be on-hand to discuss these intimate, dialogue-driven, comic-tinged dramas.
French master Philippe Garrel represents a strain of modernist cinema that stretches from the post–New Wave era to today, as evidenced by three of his films showing during NYFF this year. And we’re thrilled to have Garrel at this rare public appearance.
