INDIE VISION AWARD
CONVERSATION & SCREENING OF 'CAROL'
THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 2016 - 6:30PM - THE ROXY HOTEL, TRIBECA, NYC
Cinematographer Ed Lachman received his second Academy Award® nomination this year, for his breathtakingly beautiful work on Todd Haynes’ acclaimed film Carol. During his remarkable career, Lachman has captured images for the world’s greatest directors, including Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders, Paul Schrader, Susan Seidelman, Sofia Coppola, Robert Altman, Steven Soderbergh, and Todd Solondz. For this special tribute evening, Lachman will present his own personal 35mm print of Carol, show a highlight reel from his finest films, and discuss his career in a conversation with First Time Fest program director David Schwartz.
In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel The Price of Salt, CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of the first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) comes to light. CAROL is directed by Todd Haynes and written by Phyllis Nagy with moving performances from Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Cory Michael Smith.
