Thelma Schoonmaker In Person!
A Conversation with Thelma Schoonmaker

Behind every great filmmaker is a great editor, and nowhere is this more evident than in the work of Thelma Schoonmaker. During her 50+ years of experience, Schoonmaker has crafted some of the greatest scenes and sequences in the cinema, setting the timing, rhythm and tempo in a uniquely stylized and highly personal fashion. Through the years she has emerged as an innovative visual artist, celebrated for her work on nearly all of Martin Scorsese’s filmography, beginning with the fledgling filmmaker’s debut WHO’S THE KNOCKING AT MY DOOR (1967) on to RAGING BULL (1980) and every one of Scorsese’ films since. Along the way, she has garnered three Academy Awards for Best Editing, including RAGING BULL, THE AVIATOR (2004) and THE DEPARTED (2006), with five additional nominations, including one for her work on Scorsese’s latest. Join us for a 30-minute discussion with the legendary editor about her career and creative process, moderated by Joi McMillon. Followed by a screening of:

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s THE IRISHMAN, an epic saga of organized crime in postwar America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Pesci and Pacino), Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay (Steven Zaillian), Best Cinematography (Rodrigo Prieto), and Best Film Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker).
