JESSICA HAUSNER: THE MIRACLE WORKER
FRIDAY, NOV 08 2019 - SUNDAY, NOV 10 2019
After emerging onto the scene with her 2001 feature debut, Lovely Rita, Austrian filmmaker Jessica Hausner has rapidly established herself as a tirelessly inventive director who reconfigures genre codes in clever and provocative ways. Whether reimagining the thriller (Hotel), exploring spirituality (Lourdes), or darkly and humorously riffing on the period film (Amour Fou), Hausner never fails to surprise and stimulate. On the occasion of the release of her latest, the meticulously composed and enthralling Frankenstein gloss Little Joe (starring Emily Beecham and Ben Whishaw), join Film at Lincoln Center for a complete retrospective of Hausner's oeuvre with the director herself in person, including a special sneak preview of Little Joe.
Jessica Hausner was born in 1972 in Vienna and studied film at the Viennese film academy. With her long film debut Lovely Rita she received international attention. The film was screened in the "Un Certain Regard" section at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. She is also a screenwriter and wrote the scripts for her movies herself. Hausner's newest Film Little Joe was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
