Abel Ferrara discusses "4:44: Last Day On Earth" at the 49th New York Film Festival. The Directors Dialogues series at NYFF is sponsored by HBO®.
Bronx native Abel Ferrara directed his first low-budget feature in 1979 and, in the three decades since, has cemented his status as a legend of American independent filmmaking with his signature uncompromising portraits of men and women in conflict with their inner demons: "Ms. 45," "King of New York" (NYFF '90), "Bad Lieutenant." As he comes to the New York Film Festival with his intimate end-of-the-world tale "4:44: Last Day On Earth," Ferrara will discuss the breadth of his remarkable career and his return to New York filmmaking after an extended stay in Europe.
