This evening with Claire Denis is being presented as part of the Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecure Series. The presentation will be interview format.

Claire Denis is one of the greatest filmmakers working in the cinema today - period. Her films are visually stunning, technically accomplished and thematically complex. And, in the words of Andrew Hussey of The Observer, she is “fearless”. Her solidarity with the disenfranchised and her sometimes frightening intelligence leads to incisive critiques of the way the personal and political become intertwined, but ultimately invites us to determine what lines are being crossed.
