Welcome to the Film at Lincoln Center podcast! On today’s episode of our daily NYFF59 edition, NYFF Director of Programming Dennis Lim chats with filmmaker Gaspar Noé about his new film Vortex, a Main Slate selection of this year’s festival. 

Finding new depths of tenderness without forgoing the uncompromising fatalism that defines his work, Noé’s latest film guides us through a handful of dark days in the lives of an elderly couple in Paris: a retired psychiatrist (Françoise Lebrun) and a writer (Dario Argento) working on a book about the intersection of cinema and dreams.
