Director and producer Liz Garbus, known for her films “What Happened, Miss Simone?” (2015), “Bobby Fischer Against the World” (2011) and most recently “Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper,” is Tribeca Shortlist’s August Shortlister.
The streaming movie service sat down with the helmer to talk to her about her favorite movies, including the 2008 documentary “Harvard Beats Yale 29 to 29,” the Oscar-nominated “In The Bedroom!” directed by Todd Field and the vampire-driven “Let The Right One In.”
“I’m not a big fan of the vampire movie…But this movie has all the elements of mystery and drama, and a relationship between two characters that is so thoughtful,” she states about the Tomas Alfredson-directed flick in the clip below.
In regards to “In The Bedroom,” Garbus says that people should watch the film “because it is an incredibly, finely crafted drama that will stay with you forever.” She also explains the plot and the love that the picture received at the Academy Awards.
She also did a fun Quickfire video where Tribeca Shortlist asked her a slew of questions ranging from her favorite documentary (“Harlan County, USA”) to the movie she’s seen the most (“Empire Strikes Back”), to her favorite movie line – we’ll let you find that one out for yourself in the video below.
