SFFL 2017: David Lowery in Conversation + Film

I Get Overwhelmed: From Saints to Ghosts, David Lowery in Conversation + Ain't Them Bodies Saints (15)

Presented in association with Empire Magazine

Since his striking, Malick-infused 2013 Sundance Film Festival debut Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Wisconsin-born filmmaker David Lowery has become something of a wunderkind of the U.S. filmmaking scene. His big-budget Disney production Pete’s Dragon (2016) along with this year's Sundance selection A Ghost Story have both been greeted with rapturous reviews, praising the director's ability to tackle complex human emotions and diverse genres with a real sense of grace and romanticism. His editing work on films like Shane Carruth's Upstream Colour (2013) and writing on acclaimed indie The Yellow Birds (2017) also demonstrate a talent that is at once multi-faceted and poised with a singular, unique vision. We screen both Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and A Ghost Story this year and welcome David for a career interview which will explore his meteoric rise to filmmaking stardom.

This “In Conversation” event will be accompanied by a special screening of:

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (15)
David Lowery burst onto the scene in 2013 with this rapturous, Malick-infused period piece about two lovers separated by a run-in with the law.
