Issue 93

Our summer issue on film, guest edited by Scott Teems and Gareth Higgins, features a symposium of sixteen filmmakers, actors, and critics reflecting on “the film that helps me live better”—including Scott Derrickson on Hiroshima Mon Amour, Tony Hale on The Hours, Claudia Puig on Boyhood, and more. The issue also features interviews on film, faith, and mystery with Mira Nair and Rodrigo Garcia, and a roundtable discussion with directors Debra Granik, David Lowery, and James Ponsoldt, and film critic Alissa Wilkinson on the kind of films we need at this moment. We’ve also reprinted a classic thought piece we first published in 2001 by Ron Austin, which is both a history of films that engage with faith and a call to a new generation of filmmakers. With memoir from Lee Isaac Chung on Hollywood’s American dream as seen through the eyes of Korean immigrants; Tyler McCabe on a childhood shaped by reality TV; and Sara Zarr on seeing her novel Story of a Girl adapted for the screen. Plus film-inspired poems from Scott Cairns and Natasha Oladokun.
