This free talk takes place on Monday, September 27, 7pm, in the Amphitheater of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center.
With their respective NYFF59 Main Slate selections Bergman Island and The Worst Person in the World, Mia Hansen-Løve (Things to Come, NYFF54) and Joachim Trier (Thelma, NYFF55) achieve new creative heights in their parallel trajectories as the preeminent European filmmakers of their generation. Both artists have spent the last 15 years interrogating, with great compassion, the moral and emotional crosscurrents that undergird human behavior, and their latest films refine these inquiries with an invigorating reflexive frankness. Join the two writer-directors for a conversation about their influences and inspirations; their distinctively personal and philosophical approaches to cinematic storytelling; and the endlessly generative themes of romantic ambivalence and evolving self-knowledge that animate their new films.
