VIFF’s Film and Television Forum in partnership with the Directors Guild of Canada is proud to host a special q&a presentation with Emmy award-winning executive producer and director, Michelle MacLaren. From the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones to The Walking Dead and Hell on Wheels, MacLaren has mastered the art of turning heart-stopping action scenes into unforgettable character studies. No mean feat!

MacLaren has directed some of Breaking Bad’s best and most pivotal episodes, beginning with Season 2’s “4 Days Out” and ending with Season 5’s jaw-dropping shoot-out “To’hajiilee”. Hitfix’s Alan Sepinwall wrote, “MacLaren shoots every image of Walter White in the desert like it’s the conclusion of an epic feature film, Walter of Arabia.”

(GB, 2014, 180 mins, DCP)

Puccini’s first triumph returns to Covent Garden for the first time in 20 years in a new staging by Jonathan Kent. The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011, and with Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine, we will see a very different side of her. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut. Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience.
