Darren Aronofsky in Conversation

Date: 30 June, 8.30pm

Venue: Queen’s Film Theatre

Category: Our Place in Space


Academy Award-nominated Director Producer and Screenwriter, Darren Aronofsky, will be in conversation with Joan Parsons, Head of Queens Film Theatre, to discuss his remarkable career.

Widely known for his thought-provoking and intelligent filmmaking, Aronofsky was once asked if he deliberately aims to make audiences feel uncomfortable. He replied:

“I definitely want to make them feel something, I’m inspired by the Cyclone roller coaster in Coney Island, where I grew up. It is the greatest ride in the world. I’ve also tried to construct my films with the same structure: intense, on the edge of your seat”.

During this event, Darren will also discuss what drove him to create One Strange Rock — his ten-part series which explores the fragility and wonder of planet Earth — one of the most peculiar and unique places in the Universe.

This event is organised as part of the Our Place in Space project in partnership with Docs Ireland.
