On today’s daily NYFF61 edition of the FLC podcast, director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi joins us to discuss Evil Does Not Exist, a Main Slate selection in this year’s festival, with NYFF Artistic Director Dennis Lim.

In his potent and foreboding new film, Oscar-winning director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) reconstitutes the boundaries of the ecopolitical thriller with the tale of a serene rural village that’s about to be disrupted by the construction of a glamping site for Tokyo tourists. A Sideshow/Janus Films release.
