On Day 16 of our New York Film Festival daily podcast, Eugene Hernandez, FLC’s Deputy Director and Co-Publisher of Film Comment, is joined by Anne Thompson, Editor-at-Large at IndieWire. They discuss her early days at Film Comment magazine and how NYFF fits into the fall season landscape.

Then we go to yesterday’s press conference with Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Willem Dafoe who discuss their Closing Night selection Motherless Brooklyn. The trio talk about the bold adaptation process; how Norton balanced writing, acting, and directing; the uncertainty and risk of the project; how the film captures a changing New York City; working with cinematographer Dick Pope; and more.
