The Irish premiere of Lynne Sachs’ celebrated feature Film About a Father Who screens here alongside the world premiere of Myrid Carten’s short film Sorrow had a baby. Both artists will be in attendance for a discussion of their work following the screening.

Eight films by Lynne Sachs premiered on the Criterion Channel this week, including her new feature, Film About a Father Who. We sat down to discuss the decades long process of making a film about her father, and how that project relates to her other films about family.
