Episode notes

This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a special archival Q&A from the 43rd New York Film Festival in 2005 with Noach Boambach on The Squid and the Whale, moderated by Phillip Lopate. Noah Baumbach returns to NYFF for this year’s 60th-anniversary edition with the Opening Night film, White Noise, a wonderfully abrasive and precisely mounted period piece based on Don DeLillo’s epochal postmodern 1985 novel, which befits our modern, through-the-looking-glass pandemic reality.  NYFF60 Passes are now on sale! Single tickets will go on sale to the General Public on September 19, with pre-sale access for FLC Members and Pass holders prior to this date. Learn more at Owen Kline, who plays the youngest son in The Squid and the Whale, returns to Film at Lincoln Center with his feature debut Funny Pages on August 26, with in-person Q&As and introductions. The actor-turned-director has also handpicked an assortment of films that influenced the world to which his hilariously dark, pleasantly unexpected debut belongs. Animating Funny Pages features 35mm screenings and plays through August 25 in our theaters. Explore the lineup and get tickets to
