The Film Comment Podcast: Sundance 2019–The Final Chapter
The Film Comment Podcast returns with a final episode on the wild, windswept ride that was Sundance 2019. Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold sat down with Film Society of Lincoln Center Deputy Director (and Film Comment co-publisher) Eugene Hernandez to dissect and analyze their standout films from the festival, with a special focus on documentaries Leaving Neverland and Halston. The two also discuss the evolution of Sundance over the years, from Eugene’s first visit in 1992 (“The Year of the Twentysomething”), to the festival’s more recent efforts to expand their programming beyond the world of American independent cinema.
