With NYFF61 Opening Night selection May December, director Todd Haynes brings together his career-long preoccupations—with the nature of performance, the revelatory possibilities of melodrama, and the inner lives of women—to a thrilling, masterful crescendo.
To celebrate the North American premiere of May December at NYFF61, we were thrilled to present the U.S. premiere of Image Book, a short film by Haynes exploring the making of his new film, made as part of a commission by the Centre Pompidou for its collection “Où en êtes-vous?”
NYFF Talks are presented by HBO.
We were thrilled to welcome the Oscar-nominated filmmaker for an extended conversation with playwright and actor Jeremy O. Harris about May December.
