This year’s New York Film Festival Filmmaker in Residence is the acclaimed Greek director, producer, and actress Athina Rachel Tsangari. Richard Linklater fans will recognize Tsangari from a small role in Before Midnight, and she also produced the acclaimed 2009 Greek Oscar entry, Dogtooth. But Tsangari’s own work is also gaining more and more attention. Her new film debuted this summer at the Locarno Film Festival, and her first two features, The Slow Business of Going and Attenberg, screened prior to this year’s NYFF during a night in her honor here at the Film Society. At this year’s Filmmaker in Residence talk, Tsangari will discuss the many hats she wears as a creative person working in cinema today.
