I Get Overwhelmed: From Saints to Ghosts, David Lowery in Conversation

Since his striking, Malick-infused 2013 Sundance

Film Festival debut Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Wisconsin-
born filmmaker David Lowery has become something

of a wunderkind of the US filmmaking scene. His big-budget

Disney production Pete's Dragon (2016) along with this

year's Sundance Selection A Ghost Story have both been

greeted with rapturous reviews, praising the director's

ability to tackle complex human emotions and diverse

genres with a real sense of grace and romanticism.

His editing work on films like Shane Carruth's Upstream

Color (2013) and writing on acclaimed indie The Yellow Birds

(2017) also demonstrate a talent that is at once multi-
faceted and poised with a singular, unique vision. We screen

both Ain't Them Bodies Saints and A Ghost Story this year

and welcome David for a career interview which will explore

his meteoric rise to filmmaking stardom.
