This free talk will take place on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 6:00pm in the EBM Amphitheater.

With her starring turns in two of the year’s most audacious films, Sandra Hüller has cemented her place as Europe’s leading—and perhaps most fearless—actress. In Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest, Hüller offers a tightly wound performance of manicured evil as the wife of a Nazi officer; in Justine Triet’s Anatomy of a Fall, which won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes, Hüller is at once vulnerable, intractable, and mysterious as a writer of autofiction accused of her husband’s murder. The two roles demonstrate both the breadth of the actress’s range and the depth of her craft, and follow a two-decade oeuvre of complex, original, and indelible portrayals. We’re thrilled to welcome Hüller for an extended conversation about her illustrious career and the making of her latest bravura performances, moderated by Michelle Carey. Deep Focus: Sandra Hüller is sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter.

Anatomy of a Fall and The Zone of Interest are Main Slate selections of this year’s New York Film Festival. Click here and here to learn more about the film.
