Description

Join NewFest for a virtual conversation with 2023 Academy Award® Nominees Lukas Dhont (CLOSE; Best International Feature) and Laura Poitras (ALL THE BEAUTY AND THE BLOODSHED; Best Documentary Feature)--the directors behind two of the most acclaimed films of 2022.

NewFest alumni Dhont and Poitras will discuss their filmmaking journeys, storytelling as a form of both catharsis and activism, queer themes present in their work, and how their work has immensely resonated with audiences–from New York City to around the globe.

CLOSE (NF34 Official Selection) and ALL THE BEAUTY AND THE BLOODSHED (NF34 Closing Night Film) are now playing in theaters.
