Cinema @ The Wallis in partnership with Film Independent presents a week of Special Events for Film Lovers:
The kickoff to our series of Film Independent Presents events at The Wallis will bring you An Evening With…Academy Award(R)-nominated filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, the French Canadian filmmaker who caught the industry’s attention with Maelström in 2010, and thereafter delivered thought-provoking and visually stunning works of cinematic art in Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 before faithfully and artfully undertaking Frank Herbert’s science fiction masterwork, Dune, which despite a pandemic rose to the occasion and was met with critical acclaim and worldwide box office success. This conversation will be moderated by John Horn (Host, KPCC, The Frame).

Join us as we learn more about Villeneuve’s process and craft via a review of some of his previous films, as well as a deep-dive conversation into how he, his crew of artisans and company of actors mounted the supposedly insurmountable Dune.
