Past Lives—with Director Celine Song and Editor Keith Fraase in Person

Sunday, Dec 17, 2023 at 6:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Celine Song. 2023, 106 mins. DCP. With Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, John Magaro. Nora and Hae Sung, two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrest apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea. Two decades later, they are reunited in New York for one fateful week as they confront notions of destiny, love, and the choices that make a life. This heartrending modern romance was a knockout at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, a sleeper hit in summer 2023, and has gone on to win prizes from colleagues and critics, including a NYFCC award for Best First Feature, and multiple Independent Spirit Award nominations.

In this latest installment of Art & Craft, MoMI welcomes the director Celine Song and the editor, Keith Fraase (To the Wonder, Voyage of Time), to talk about constructing a story that takes place over three distinct time periods. An A24 release.
