Tomorrow night! Kent Jones speaks with the Dardenne Brothers

May 28, 2009

They are veterans of the New York Film Festival and Cannes. Tomorrow night at 8:30, enjoy a rare sit-down with the Dardenne Brothers, as they chat with Kent Jones about a career spanning three decades. Plus, you might want to check out La Promesse at 6:40 before the screening–this breakthrough film sealed the brothers reputation for intensely naturalistic explorations of Belgian life. The film stars Jérémie Rénier as guilt-ridden 15-year-old Igor, who helps his father Roger (Olivier Gourmet) run an illegal immigrant labor network.
