About This Screening
A Live Interview with Scott MacDonald interspersed with clips from Haynes’ rarely screened early films: Poison, Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, and Dottie Got Spanked.
Todd Haynes’ remarkable body of films—Poison, Safe, Far From Heaven and I'm Not There— have earned him unique regard as one of contemporary cinema’s most eloquent voices. Beginning with his earliest shorts he has been a filmmaker who defies the boundaries of form, content and social expectations to craft a singularly personal cinema. Tonight we welcome Haynes and film writer, professor, and curator Scott MacDonald for this live interview, exploring the evolution of Haynes’ work.
