On Day 9 of our New York Film Festival daily podcast, we begin with an introduction to our Projections section, which is underway through Sunday. Eugene Hernandez, FLC’s Deputy Director and Co-Publisher of Film Comment, is joined by curator Aily Nash in a discussion about the evolving definition of avant-garde and her picks for what to see during Projections.

Then we go to yesterday’s Marriage Story press conference featuring Noah Baumbach, Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda, and producer David Heyman. They discuss the influences on the film–from Hitchcock to Persona–Robbie Ryan’s cinematography, the duality of marriage, the importance of adding humor to the narrative, the different personalities of the lawyers, and much more.
