This weekend we are premiering Manderlay, the second film in Lars von Trier’s USA trilogy. We would have loved to have Lars here for a post-screening Q&A, but alas, he does not fly, and has yet to set foot on our shores. The good news is that the film is also premiering at the IFC Center in New York, and for their Noon screenings on Saturday and Sunday, they will project a live video Q&A with the director and Richard Pena, Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Associate Professor of Film Studies at Columbia University. The chat is sponsored by Salon.com, and they will be broadcasting the Q&As from their website next week. You can catch the local premiere of Manderlay here and catch the Q&A online afterwards. In the meantime, Andrew O’Hehir of Salon.com has some interesting things to say about the film and some questions of his own.
Tickets for this Saturday’s Screening are going fast. I would try to arrive a little early to make sure you get yours.
As a loyal blog reader, be the first to email me (by Friday at 4:30) to get a free pair of tickets to the show.
