Last month, after a screening at The New York Film Festival, James Israel asked me if I might be interested in moderating indieWIRE's upcoming evening with Darren Aronofsky at the Apple Store SoHo here in NYC. I was deeply honored to be asked and accepted the invitation. The event is this Monday, November 13th, 2007 at 7:00pm.

I first saw Pi in New York City and have always associated the film as one of the quitessential NYC independent film moments in my life, but it was Requiem For A Dream, which I was lucky enough to see at its World Premiere in the Palais in Cannes, that stays with me to this day. Now, having seen The Fountain twice, I am very excited to talk to Mr. Aronofsky all three films and find out more about his process in bringing The Fountain to the screen.

I hope you can make down to SoHo for the 7:00pm discussion, and again, a huge thanks to indieWIRE for the opportunity. It should be a great evening.
