Then we go to yesterday’s tribute to exhibitor, producer, and distributor Ben Barenholtz, a titan of independent cinema who died earlier this year. A panel of New Yorkers who knew him well–Columbia University film professor Annette Insdorf, and collaborators Ethan Coen, John Turturro, and film distributor Eamonn Bowles–discussed their memories working with Barenholtz and more.
