now playing in-person through February 3rd at Film at Lincoln Center
Fifteen years after their first feature-length collaboration, Reprise (Q&A with Joachim Trier and Anders Danielsen Lie tomorrow!), and 10 years after its follow-up, Oslo, August 31st (Q&A with Trier and Danielsen Lie this Sunday), director Joachim Trier and his longtime co-writer Eskil Vogt turned their gaze back on the Norwegian capital city with NYFF59 Main Slate selection The Worst Person in the World (opening Friday, Feb. 4).
Playful yet melancholy, intricately observed yet bracingly deft, and centering on three exhilarating performances from actor (and practicing physician) Anders Danielsen Lie, the films that comprise the newly christened Oslo Trilogy deliver lyrical, unflinching meditations on memory, self-knowledge, and the mutability of identity in today’s Europe. More on the films of the Trilogy are below my signature.
In celebration of the new film’s American release, Film at Lincoln Center is excited to host the filmmaker for live Q&As and present the Trilogy alongside a selection of companion films curated by Trier and Vogt, some of which I've highlighted below:
- Thurs. February 3rd: Ukrainian-Soviet filmmaker Larisa Shepitko was only 28 when she directed her second feature, Wings (1966), a searing & quietly impassioned character study of a woman caught between two ways of being, in the early aftermath of Khrushchev’s Thaw.
