We were thrilled to welcome director Rodrigo Moreno to NYFF61 after the U.S. Premiere of his Main Slate selection The Delinquents to discuss genre filmmaking and the five years it took to make The Delinquents in a conversation with NYFF Advisor Violeta Bava.
Timid bank clerk Morán (Daniel Elías), fed up with his dead-end middle-management job, decides one day to simply walk into the vault and pack a bag with enough cash to cover his salary until retirement age. A heist picture unlike any other, The Delinquents upends genre expectations with a gentle yet deftly constructed existentialist fable. Argentina’s official entry for Best International Feature Film at the 2024 Academy Awards. A MUBI release.
Enjoy the conversation with Moreno below, and if you missed it at NYFF61, check out The Delinquents at Film at Lincoln Center now. Get tickets.
