Conversations at the Lodge: Jonathan Demme and Neil Young

It’s a rare meeting of mavericks. In Neil Young: Heart of Gold, director Jonathan Demme wonderfully channels the autumnal mastery of folk-rock pioneer Neil Young in performance. This event brings the artists together for a conversation about the winding roads that have intersected in the making of this film. Jonathan Demme’s storied career has handily straddled feature and documentary worlds in classics ranging from Stop Making Sense and The Agronomist to The Silence of the Lambs. Neil Young’s unquantifiable, multi-award-winning contributions to popular music have effectively re-invented the way we hear, and his filmmaking and film scoring span three decades. Join these incomparable artists for an intimate discussion of their work, of film, and of music today.
