Conversation with Chris Fujiwara on Why Tourneur matters
Saturday 4 November @ 11.00am | NFSA Theatrette
Internationally respected film critic, Chris Fujiwara, has written many publications on cinema, including Jacques Tourneur: The Cinema of Nightfall; and studies of Otto Preminger and Jerry Lewis. He was formerly Artistic Director of Edinburgh International Film Festival, has contributed programs for many other film festivals, and has lectured on film aesthetics and film history at Tokyo University, Yale University, and elsewhere. He will discuss what inspired him to study Tourneur and how he understands his work.
