Double Feature! Director Joachim Trier In Person!
Discussion between films with director Joachim Trier and writer Eskil Vogt.
2015, The Orchard, 109 min, Norway/France/Denmark/USA, Dir: Joachim Trier

In director Joachim Trier’s first feature in English, war photographer Isabelle Reed (Isabelle Huppert) - whose work has taken her to the most dangerous places in the world – dies in a car accident just a few miles from her New York home. She leaves a grief-stricken husband, Gene (Gabriel Byrne), and sons Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) and Conrad (Devin Druid). Three years later, working on a retrospective of Isabelle’s photography, Gene tries to enlist his sons’ help, but Jonah is overwhelmed by his marriage and a new baby, and hard-hit teenager Conrad has withdrawn into the world of computer games. “A family drama of extraordinary beauty.” - Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal.

35 mm!

2006, Park Circus/Miramax, 105 min, Norway, Dir: Joachim Trier

Erik (Espen Klouman Høiner) and Phillip (Anders Danielsen Lie) grew up sharing a passion for literature and both completed their first novels in their early 20s. While Phillip's book was accepted by a major publisher and became a best-seller, Erik's book earned a sheaf of rejection slips. The harsh glare of the celebrity lifestyle caused Phillip to suffer a nervous breakdown, while frustrated Erik spends more time with his pretentious compatriots. Trier earned a Discovery Award at the Toronto International Film Festival for this witty and remarkably assured feature debut.
