Three decades into his feature filmmaking career, cult-favorite Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook—recipient of the Best Director award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival—makes his NYFF debut with Decision to Leave, an intricate Hitchcockian epic that both draws on familiar genres like the crime thriller and the melodrama and takes them in entirely new formal and psychological directions. We are excited to welcome Park for a deep-dive conversation delving into his long and acclaimed career, his affinity for genre filmmaking, his artistic influences and inspirations, and the making of his latest feature. Moderated by critic Farran Smith Nehme.

Park Chan-wook’s Decision to Leave is a Main Slate selection of this year’s New York Film Festival. Click here to learn more about the film.
