Fifteen years after their first feature-length collaboration, Reprise, and 10 years after its follow-up, Oslo, August 31st, director Joachim Trier and his longtime co-writer Eskil Vogt turned their gaze back on the Norwegian capital city with NYFF59 Main Slate selection The Worst Person in the World. Playful yet melancholy, intricately observed yet bracingly deft, and centering on three exhilarating performances from actor (and practicing physician) Anders Danielsen Lie, the films that comprise the newly christened Oslo Trilogy deliver lyrical, unflinching meditations on memory, self-knowledge, and the mutability of identity in today’s Europe. In celebration of the new film’s American release, Film at Lincoln Center is excited to host the filmmaker for screenings of the entire trilogy, presented alongside a selection of companion films curated by Trier and Vogt.
