This talk brings together the directors behind two stunning works of autofiction in the NYFF60 lineup. One Fine Morning by leading French filmmaker (and NYFF staple) Mia Hansen-Løve and Aftersun, the debut feature by Charlotte Wells, both center on father-daughter relationships drawn from the directors’ own lives, exploring tenderness and trauma, love and loss with formal ingenuity and emotional force. Both films also feature powerhouse performances—Paul Mescal in Aftersun and Léa Seydoux in One Fine Morning—that challenge and reinvigorate routine cinematic portrayals of femininity, masculinity, and intimacy. Join Hansen-Løve and Wells for an extended conversation about the process of making art out of one’s life, giving filmic shape to the workings of memory and time, reimagining the contours of “women’s cinema,” and more.

Mia Hansen-Løve’s One Fine Morning and Charlotte Wells’s Aftersun are Main Slate selections of this year’s New York Film Festival.
