The Apple & indieWIRE Q & A series at Apple Store Soho is wrapping up with a few more events. “Micmacs” director Jean-Pierre Jeunet will be there today after a conversation with the directors of “Freakonomics,” including Eugene Jarecki, Morgan Spurlock, Seth Gordon, Alex Gibney, Heidi Ewing, and Rachel Grady. Today's schedule:
The Directors of “Freakonomics”: Friday, April 30, 6:00 p.m.
Join Eugene Jarecki, Morgan Spurlock, Seth Gordon, Alex Gibney, Heidi Ewing, and Rachel Grady as they discuss their documentary film collaboration, “Freakonomics,” in which they each interpret a different chapter of the best-selling book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. Moderator: Eugene Hernandez
Jean-Pierre Jeunet: Friday, April 30, 7:30 p.m.
The French auteur behind “Delicatessen” and “Amélie” discusses his latest film, “Micmacs.” The story follows Bazil (“Dany Boon,” “Joyeux Noël”), raised as an orphan, who now has a bullet lodged in his brain from a previous mishap. Gentle-natured and kind, he exacts a revenge plot against the giant weapons manufacturers responsible for his accident. It’s a whimsical David and Goliath story, reminiscent of Buster Keaton. Moderator: David Schwartz (Museum of the Moving Image)
