Director Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237) discusses his new film THE NIGHTMARE on today's episode. For his highly anticipated follow-up to 2012's ROOM 237, the director turned his attention to the terrifying subject of sleep paralysis. In the film, he interviews eight people who suffer from the affliction, and he cross-cuts their interviews with vivid reenactments of the nightmares they describe. The result is an intense experience that evokes the overwhelming fear that consumes the storytellers. The film opened here at The Film Society of Lincoln Center last Friday and is now playing daily. On opening night, while a packed house enjoyed the film, we sat down with the director in our greenroom to discuss it. Our conversation started with the director's own experience with sleep paralysis, and from there we touched on subjects like artifice, visual influences, and the supernatural.

Their new film Heaven Knows What had its U.S. Premiere at the 52nd New York Film Festival last fall. Heaven Knows What is a gritty New York drama starring Arielle Holmes as Harley, a heroin addict in a chaotic relationship with the explosive Ilya, played by Caleb Landry Jones. Much of the film was shot just blocks from Lincoln Center and it is based on Holmes’s own experiences living as a junkie on the streets of New York. On the occasion of its theatrical release, Film Comment Digital Editor Violet Lucca spoke with the Safdie brothers about the film. The candid conversation ranged from their approach to the film's score, their relationship to the cast, and the challenges of shooting in New York. As a bonus, the episode also features an excerpt from our recent conversation with Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard (My Struggle), who joined us for our new series Print Screen, which invites authors to present films that have complimented and inspired their work. Knausgaard chose to present Lars von Trier's Dogme 95 classic The Idiots, and following the screening he joined our Director of Programming Dennis Lim to discuss what the film, and cinema in general, means to him and his work.

#31 - Jia Zhang-ke in 2008
00:50:31
This week's episode features an archival conversation with Jia Zhang-ke, one of the most influential filmmakers in modern Chinese cinema. Jia is receiving the prestigious Carrosse d’Or (Golden Coach) award during this month's Cannes Film Festival and his latest film, MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART, is also screening in competition. Jia Zhang-ke is one of the leading figures of the "Sixth Generation" of Chinese cinema, and we've welcomed him to the Film Society many times over the years. Back at the 2008 New York Film Festival, he came to present his documentary-fiction hybrid 24 CITY, which deals with the changing industrial landscape of Chengdu as a factory is torn down and replaced by luxury flats. The film screened as part of the festival's main slate and, during his visit, the director sat down with critic Scott Foundas for one of our HBO Directors Dialogues. During the conversation, he discussed his beginnings as a filmmaker at the Beijing Film Academy, his criticisms of the "Fifth Generation" of Chinese filmmakers, and his singular approach to nonfiction filmmaking.

Bonus Episode - Robert Redford Chaplin Award
00:24:58
In this special bonus episode of our weekly podcast The Close-Up, we're thrilled to present highlights from our 42nd annual Chaplin Award Gala honoring Robert Redford. The star-studded evening kicked off with a hilarious speech by Jane Fonda, who received the Chaplin Award in 2001 and starred alongside Redford in The Chase (1966), Barefoot in the Park (1967), and The Electric Horseman (1979). After that, we heard from writer-director J.C. Chandor, whose 2013 film All Is Lost was an official selection at the 51st New York Film Festival and starred Redford (and Redford only) as a man lost at sea. The final speaker, Barbra Streisand, was another Chaplin Award recipient, back in 2013, and offered heartfelt praise for her The Way We Were (1973) co-star before finally bringing him out on stage to accept the award. The Chaplin Award Gala is the Film Society of Lincoln Center's major fundraising event, helping to support our ongoing work in education, artist development, and cross-cultural film outreach. Past recipients include Sidney Poitier, Meryl Streep, Alfred Hitchcock, Audrey Hepburn, and, of course, Chaplin himself. 00:42 - 06:10 - Jane Fonda 06:10 - 12:56 - JC Chandor 12:56 - 16:14 - Barbara Streisand 16:14 - 24:00 - Robert Redford This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

#30 - Agnès Varda
00:37:48
Legendary French filmmaker Agnès Varda, who will be a recipient of an honorary Palme d'Or at Cannes, is the focus of this week's episode. The director stopped by the Film Society during our second annual Art of the Real festival, during which she was honored with a sidebar retrospective entitled The Actualities of Agnès Varda. Art of the Real is founded on the most expansive possible view of documentary film, and the selections from Varda's work showed the director's repeated interest in the boundary between fiction and nonfiction. Even in her fictions films, she always incorporated elements of the real. Following a screening of her seminal debut, LA POINTE COURTE, Agnès Varda joined festival co-programmer Rachel Rakes for a Q&A. Besides sharing fascinating anecdotes from the making of the film, Varda also told stories of her interactions with other icons of French cinema like Alain Resnais, Francois Truffaut, and André Bazin.

#28b - 'White God'
00:24:04
For part two of this week's podcast, we're featuring a conversation with the director and screenwriter of the Hungarian thriller, WHITE GOD. Director Kornél Mundruczó and screenwriter Kata Wéber joined Film Comment's Gavin Smith for a Q&A during our annual New Directors/New Films series, which is co-presented with The Museum of Modern Art. WHITE GOD was one of the most buzzed-about films in the festival and the conversation took place in front of a sold out crowd in our Walter Reade Theater. The film tells parallel stories of a young girl’s coming-of-age and the treacherous journey of her dog Hagen after he is let go by the girl’s strict father. The director offered fascinating insight into the film's production, which required the cooperation of no less than 200 dogs. It was miraculously done without relying on CGI, and the director emphasized that no dogs were harmed in the making of the movie. In fact, all 200 of the dogs were successfully placed into foster homes after the production completed. This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

#28a - Albert Maysles
00:28:57
For part one of this week's podcast, we're featuring a conversation with Albert Maysles from last year's New York Film Festival. The Q&A took place after a screening of his latest film, IRIS, which is now in theaters. The legendary director passed away this past March, and his presence will be sorely missed, but he will live on through his hugely influential films. Albert Maysles was an important member of our extended Film Society family. "Grey Gardens" premiered at the 13th New York Film Festival in 1975 and IRIS had its world premiere here at the 52nd NYFF last year. The film follows Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire.

#27 - 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck'
00:45:57
For this week's episode, we're featuring filmmaker Brett Morgen, whose new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck begins its limited theatrical release this weekend. Morgen's HBO Documentary feature is the first documentary to be made about the late Nirvana singer and guitarist with the cooperation of his family. Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, approached Morgen about the idea of taking on the projects back in 2007. With that blessing, Morgen and his team were given unprecedented access to Cobain's personal and family archives. The powerful film includes footage of various Nirvana performances and unheard songs as well as previously unreleased home movies, recordings, artwork photography and more. Additionally, the film includes interviews with Kurt Cobain's mother, Wendy, and father, Donald Cobain, as well as with Courtney Love. Kurt and Courtney's only daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, served as a co-executive producer of the film. After its debut at Sundance in January, the film screened at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in February. HBO will begin airing the feature May 4th. Morgen and the film's editor Joe Beshenkovsky joined the Film Society's Eugene Hernandez on stage at the Walter Reade Theater this past Monday night, following the screening of the film, for an extensive conversation about Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, digging through Kurt Cobain's art, writing and music (the film contains previously unreleased music) and working with Courtney Love and Frances Cobain. David Fear of Rolling Stone described the film as "the unfiltered Kurt experience," noting that Cobain is shown "not as a spokesperson of a generation," but as a "human being, husband and father."

The film is the sophomore directorial effort from Frédéric Tcheng and his first as solo director. Following the opening night screening of DIOR AND I, Tcheng sat with our own Eugene Hernandez here at the Walter Reade Theater for an intimate discussion about the film.

01:16:34
This week's two-part episode features French filmmaker Olivier Assayas. Special guests include actresses Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, who co-star in his latest film, CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, opening in theaters next weekend. CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, a main-slate selection of last year’s New York Film Festival, stars Binoche as a veteran actress coming to terms with her life and career after agreeing to act in a revival of the play that made her famous 20 years earlier. Stewart plays her assistant, who accompanies her on a soul-searching journey through the Sils Maria region of the Swiss Alps. Assayas has been called the most innovative and influential French director of his generation, and his relationship to the New York Film Festival goes all the back to 1996, when his film IRMA VEP was included in that year’s festival. Preceding the official NYFF52 screening of Clouds of Sils Maria, Assayas joined Binoche and Stewart onstage for a conversation with press, moderated by the festival’s director of programming, Kent Jones. The discussion will serve as part one of today’s episode. Part two comes from 2004, when the director took the stage following a screening of his seminal 1996 film, IRMA VEP. That film stars Maggie Cheung as herself cast in an ill-fated production of a remake of Louis Feullade's classic silent film serial LES VAMPIRES. This fascinating conversation was also moderated by our own Kent Jones. This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

#24 - Noah Baumbach + Brian De Palma
01:42:49
This week's episode features a two-part conversation with Oscar-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach. Part one comes from a recent Q&A after a screening of his latest, WHILE WE'RE YOUNG; and part two comes from the 2012 New York Film Festival, when Baumbach sat with legendary director Brian De Palma for a very special Directors Dialogue. Baumbach returned to the Film Society of Lincoln Center in March for a mini-retrospective entitled Growing Up Baumbach, which included a triple feature of KICKING AND SCREAMING, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, and a sneak preview of WHILE WE'RE YOUNG. In the film, which is now in theaters, Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts star as a married couple in their forties who connect with a younger couple played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried. The comedy has been hailed as the director’s most accessible film. In fact, at a recent screening the director jokingly said: “What you are about to see is the happiest I get.” Noah Baumbach has a long history with the Film Society of Lincoln Center, starting in 1995 when his debut feature, KICKING AND SCREAMING, was a main-slate selection in the New York Film Festival. Since then, he has attended subsequent NYFFs to present THE SQUID AND THE WHALE in 2005, MARGOT AT THE WEDDING in 2007, and FRANCES HA in 2012. In 2010, the director took the stage with legendary director Brian De Palma for a special Directors Dialogue moderated by Variety’s Scott Foundas, which is featured in part two of today's podcast. But first, part one spotlights Baumbach's most recent appearance at the Film Society's Walter Reade Theater, with a talk moderated by New York Film Festival Director Kent Jones. 00:00–2:40 - Intro 02:40–30:59 - WHILE WE'RE YOUNG Q&A 31:54–01:42:48 - Noah Baumbach + Brian De Palma at NYFF50 This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

#23 - Mad Men: The End of an Era
01:31:28
In celebration of the highly anticipated conclusion of the AMC series Mad Men, the Film Society paid tribute to the show with a gala event in Alice Tully Hall. Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner and stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks, and John Slattery joined journalist Chuck Klosterman, who moderated the lively on-stage conversation about the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series, looking back at the popular TV show's seven seasons. The event, which took place Saturday, March 21 here at Lincoln Center, was dubbed "Mad Men: The End of an Era." Mad Men is set in the '60s initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York. The series has received widespread critical acclaim since its debut nearly eight years ago for its historical authenticity, visual style, costume design, acting, writing, and directing. The series' list of awards include 15 Emmys and four Golden Globes. It is the first basic-cable series to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series. Before a packed house, most of the cast members walked out on stage fittingly with cocktails in hand. Before opening the 90-minute discussion, Klosterman noted that many people who have been ardent viewers of Mad Men had not lived through the era, which the series so meticulously depicted. "What's amazing is that [there are many] people who feel nostalgia for an era they never actually experienced," he said. "But that also [shows] the power of advertising…" The event featured favorite clips from various seasons of the series, curated by Weiner and cast. The podcast includes quick synopses of the clips to contextualize the conversation. Mad Men premiered in July 2009 on AMC. The cable network will begin airing the final episodes of the series on April 5. This podcast is brought to you by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Film lives here. www.filmlinc.com

01:01:39
This week's episode comes from last year's New York Film Festival, during which the Film Society paid tribute to actor/ director Ethan Hawke. The special event featured a dinner followed by an intimate discussion with programming director Kent Jones. During the conversation, Hawke spoke at length about his fruitful collaborations with director Richard Linklater, his work in mainstream Hollywood, and his recent transition to working as a director. His directorial debut - SEYMOUR: AN INTRODUCTION - was an official selection in the festival and is now in theaters. The documentary profiles the legendary pianist Seymour Bernstein, who was in attendance at the event. When discussing his reasons for making the film, Hawke admitted that in order to understand, one would need to hear Seymour play. Bernstein then graced the audience with a beautiful rendition of a Brahms Intermezzo. This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center. Film Lives Here. www.filmlinc.com

Two of the most accomplished actresses in contemporary French cinema—Mélanie Laurent and Nathalie Baye—discuss their careers in one of our Free Talks, which are sponsored by HBO®. Nathalie Baye is a living legend of French cinema who began her career working with the likes of Jean-Luc Godard, Maurice Pialat, and Francois Truffaut. More recently, Baye has shown no signs of slowing down as she continues to produce exciting work with directors like Tsai Ming-liang and Xavier Dolan. Her latest film, SK1, is a suspenseful thriller that chronicles the multi-year hunt, arrest, and trial of serial killer Guy Georges. This past Sunday, Baye sat down with César Award-winning actress and filmmaker, Mélanie Laurent to discuss their work and careers with film critic Stephen Witty in the Film Society's Amphitheater. Laurent is best known to American audiences for her work in films like INGLORIOUS BASTERDS and BEGINNERS. During the discussion, Baye spoke candidly about her relationship with directors, admitting that all she wants is “to be loved.” Truffaut, she said, was great with actors simply because he loved them well. On Godard, Baye said that he is “the biggest thief,” before adding, “I say [this] with the most tenderness.” Mélanie Laurent made her directorial debut with 2011’s THE ADOPTED, and her follow-up, BREATHE, made its New York premiere here at the Film Society this past Saturday. The actress turned director spoke at length about her experiences stepping behind the camera and gave her perspective on what makes actor-director relationships flourish. She also admitted that directing has been her dream since she was a little girl. Both SK1 and BREATHE are official selections of the 20th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, currently underway at the Film Society. Co-produced with UniFrance films, the annual series surveys the latest and greatest in French cinema. . This podcast is brought to you by The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

#19 - David Cronenberg
01:11:19
For this week’s episode of The Close-Up, we’re proud to present an archival conversation with master director David Cronenberg, whose latest film, MAPS TO THE STARS, hits theaters this weekend. Back in 2005, the Film Society of Lincoln Center paid tribute to David Cronenberg leading up that year’s release of A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. That film went on to garner widespread critical acclaim with Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) praising its “explosive power and subversive wit,” and Manohla Dargis (New York Times) calling it a “mindblower.” For our 2005 tribute, The Film Society capped off a retrospective of the director’s work with “An Evening with David Cronenberg,” which featured a conversation with journalist David D’Arcy. The hour-plus discussion touched on many aspects of Cronenberg’s extensive career through the lens of the director’s rare moment of studio favor. “I’ve been getting a lot more offers from studios,” he said, “this will last about 10 minutes but I’m - for an older guy - kind of hot right now.” In addition to his dealings with studios, the director also speaks candidly about his relationship with critics, which he describes as very strange.
