From Little Odessa in 1994 to his new film The Immigrant, James Gray has lovingly crafted five deeply personal films one image and emotion at a time. He is a New York director through and through, and he has shown us people and places within the city that one rarely sees in movies. This marks Gray’s first visit to the New York Film Festival, and we are very happy that he has agreed to talk with us about the films that have formed him and his own unique approach to movies.
