An Evening with Michael Haneke
Michael Haneke is one of the most influential and acclaimed directors of the last two decades. He will make a rare public appearance at LACMA to discuss his career as well as his newest film, Amour. Whether depicting the private and public struggles of a pre-war German hamlet in The White Ribbon, the discontents of a French family in Cache, or the surreptitious desires of a repressed Austrian musician in The Piano Teacher, Haneke always ensures that his characters’ pasts, as well as their sublimated passions, are never too far from reach, lurking in the shadows and ready to overtake them. Winning his second Palme D’or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival with Amour, Haneke brings together two legends of the screen—Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva—for a haunting portrait of an octogenarian couple’s final days together.
