Sept. 27 at 6 PM PDT

VIFF Talks | Online (Pre-Recorded)

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman’s latest film, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, is an uncanny, tightly wound metaphysical thriller streaming worldwide on Netflix from Sept. 4. Adapted from Iain Reid’s critically acclaimed debut novel, the film tackles our assumptions about identity and relationships in Kaufman’s signature surrealistic style. We’re thrilled to host Charlie for a conversation on the process of adapting Reid’s material for the screen.

Running Time: 45 mins.
