This week we welcomed writer/director Todd Field, cast members Cate Blanchett, Nina Hoss, and Sophie Kauer, and composer Hildur Guonadóttir to the press conference for TÁR, moderated by NYFF Artistic Director Dennis Lim.

The charisma and emotional precision of Cate Blanchett are put to astounding use in this deft showcase for the actor’s musical artistry, a stinging portrait of a world-famous orchestra conductor’s gradual unraveling that is the first film in sixteen years from director Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children).

Listen to and watch the conversation below as Field, Guonadóttir, Blanchett, Hoss, and Kauer discuss the journey of making TÁR. Don’t forget to mark your calendars: TÁR opens this Friday, October 7, from Focus Features.
