Todd Haynes and Christine Vachon with Scott Foundas



Filmmakers Todd Haynes and Christine Vachon join Scott Foundas of Amazon Studios for the 60th Walker Dialogue. Illuminated by film clips, the talk explores the creative process, influences from the history of cinema, and Haynes’s long-standing partnership with Vachon, as they celebrate Killer Films’ 20th anniversary.

A filmmaker noted for creating his own genre, Haynes proposes imaginative analogies, extrapolated lineages, and alternative histories—casting the pathos of AIDS onto an affluent housewife, locating Oscar Wilde as the forebear of glam rock, and portraying Bob Dylan through performances by six actors. His 2015 film Carol, which looks at forbidden love in the 1950s, is the recipient of multiple Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations.
