Brooklyn filmmaker Alex Ross Perry and Elisabeth Moss, star of his new film Queen of Earth, may be the first duo to do back-to-back q&as at MoMA and MoMI. They were at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday and then at the Museum of the Moving Image on Tuesday to cap off Perry’s retrospective there. As you can see from the flyer above, the chats continue this week at IFC Center and Lincoln Center.
Last week we tipped you off to a few upcoming Q&As with some of our fave filmmakers (you can watch Friday night’s chat with Greta Gerwig, at Sunshine Cinema, above and on YouTube). Now you can add Alex Ross Perry to the mix, since the cat-loving director of Listen Up Philip will appear at a preview screening of his new one, Queen of Earth, as part of a retrospective at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. Elisabeth Moss of Mad Men, who stars in the movie as a woman on the verge, will also be on hand August 25.
It’s been a very Abbi Jacobson couple of days: Saturday at Irving Plaza we saw her sit in with Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas during a taping of their “How Did This Get Made” podcast (spoiler alert: they shredded Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hercules in the City), and this morning she and her Broad City co-creator Ilana Glazer kicked off Internet Week with a conversation with Marie Claire editor Anne Fulenwider.
