Director Lisandro Alonso and cast members Sadie LaPointe and Alaina Clifford joined NYFF Artistic Director Dennis Lim on stage at the Walter Reade Theater after the North American premiere of their film Eureka to discuss acting debuts, representation, and Westerns.

The protean Argentinean director of La Libertad and Jauja continues to shape-shift, delight, and challenge with his marvelous and immersive new film, which takes the viewer on an unexpected journey through three stories set in wildly different terrain, each of them reflecting lives haunted by the specter of colonialist violence, featuring Viggo Mortensen and Chiara Mastroianni.
