Few actors of her generation have amassed as consistent, eclectic, and dazzling a body of work as two-time Academy Award nominated, Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy Award winning actress, Laura Dern. From her early roles in movies by Peter Bogdanovich and Joyce Chopra to her work with Steven Spielberg, Kelly Reichardt, Alexander Payne, Clint Eastwood, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Robert Altman, to her enduring and revelatory partnership with David Lynch, Dern has never shied away from challenges—indeed, she has boldly sought them out in pursuit of cinematic art. Following a daylong celebration of her ongoing contribution to the history of screen acting, Dern joined us for an onstage discussion spanning her illustrious career, with a focus on her recent triumphs on the big and small screen (Certain Women, Wilson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Big Little Lies, Twin Peaks: The Return).
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
