Shot over three years along the war-wrecked borders of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon, Gianfranco Rosi’s Notturno is a transfixing, heartrending glimpse into the plight of those living through the rise of ISIS in the vacuum created by the U.S. invasion. The veteran documentary filmmaker, last seen at NYFF with 2016’s Fire at Sea, joins us to discuss his extraordinary body of immersive, empathetic, and urgent nonfiction. Moderated by Dennis Lim.
