This free talk will take place on Saturday, Jan. 27 at 4pm in the EBM Amphitheater.

To complement and contextualize the screening lineup, Film at Lincoln Center is pleased to convene a panel of critics and filmmakers to discuss the significance of Serge Daney’s thought today, with a particular emphasis on how his politically driven analysis and radical enthusiasms of the 1970s might speak to our contemporary moment. In this wide-ranging conversation, panelists will be invited to consider the relation between mise-en-scène and moral perspective, the cinema as an antidote to advertising, and the critic’s role as an ally to filmmakers. Panelists include critic Richard Brody and Nicholas Elliott, translator of Footlights and series co-programmer. Moderated by Madeline Whittle.
