The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced An Evening with Athina Rachel Tsangari on Thursday, September 17, including a conversation and double feature of “Attenberg” and “The Slow Business of Going.” The Greek writer-director was recently selected as the 2015 Filmmaker in Residence for the upcoming 53rd New York Film Festival, and her new film, “Chevalier,” will be playing at both NYFF and TIFF in September.

Before her directorial career, Tsangari had a small role in Richard Linklater’s landmark 1991 film, “Slacker,” and her relationship with the indie filmmaker continued when she served as co-producer and actress in 2013’s “Before Midnight.” The Film Society will welcome Tsangari for a conversation about her career, during which she will introduce and discuss her widely lauded sophomore feature “Attenberg” (2010), which played New Directors/New Films in 2011. The conversation will be followed by a screening of her rarely seen “The Slow Business of Going,” a lo-fi sci-fi road movie that was her MFA thesis feature at the University of Texas at Austin. 

Tickets will go on sale today. Single screening tickets are $14; $11 for students and seniors (62+); and $9 for Film Society members. Visit filmlinc.org for more information.
