Free and open to the public!

Perhaps the most divisive film from this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Ryan Gosling as mother and son in a Thailand-set thriller. During a recent FilmLinc Daily interview, Refn said that his new film continues themes that he’s explored in his recent films Drive (2011) and Valhalla Rising (2009).

The film opens at Film Society on July 19, but here’s your chance to participate in an extended conversation with this always provocative filmmaker.

This Summer Talk is free and open to the public. Complimentary tickets will be distributed at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center box office on a first-come, first-served basis starting one hour prior to the conversation. Limit: one ticket per person. For those unable to attend, video will be available at
