On Day 10 of our New York Film Festival daily podcast, Eugene Hernandez, FLC’s Deputy Director and Co-Publisher of Film Comment, shares an overview of two free tributes happening at the festival this Tuesday: at 2pm, we honor Ben Barenholtz, titan of independent cinema, with Annette Insdorf, Ethan Coen, John Turturro, and Eamonn Bowles in person; then at 7pm, Rosalie Varda and other special guests join us to reflect on the legacy of Agnès Varda. We dedicated the 57th NYFF to the legendary director and ahead of a comprehensive retrospective this winter, join us for this in-depth conversation on her unwavering spirit and radical body of work. See more details on these events and all free events at Film at Lincoln Center here.
Then we go to yesterday’s Q&A following The Cotton Club Encore. Director and co-writer Francis Ford Coppola was joined by Maurice Hines and James Remar as they discussed their restored and “reawakened” version of the stylish throwback to 1930s Hollywood. They talked about the ambitious production and the response to the film upon its release, as well as what’s been added to this new cut.
