On today’s daily NYFF61 conversation, director Justine Triet, co-writer Arthur Harari, and lead actress Sandra Hüller discuss Main Slate selection Anatomy of a Fall with NYFF Artist Director Dennis Lim. 

The winner of this year’s Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Justine Triet’s drama about a famous novelist (Sandra Hüller) accused of killing her husband after his body has fallen from a high window at their home in the French Alps is a riveting procedural and a delicate inquiry into the impossibility of ultimate truth in people’s relationships. 

Listen to the Q&A featuring Triet, Harari, and Hüller as they discuss writing with an actress in mind, complex characters, and the denial of access that is integral to Anatomy of a Fall. A NEON release. Anatomy of a Fall opens on October 18 at Film at Lincoln Center and tickets are on sale now. Don’t forget to subscribe here for more filmmaker conversations.
