The Congress: Preview Screening & Discussion with Director Ari Folman
Don’t miss this screening of The Congress, a bold new film about an aging actress’ (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood.


The film’s award-winning director, Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir), joins Indiewire critic Jordan Hoffman to discuss how its inventive style—combining animation with quasi-documentary live action—turns the camera on the movie biz itself.
Presented in partnership with Indiewire.
