Best known for his award winning, independent feature films, Sean Baker will present “A Conversation with an American Filmmaker.”
Baker is best known for independent feature films, including his latest, The Florida Project, a film whose title comes from an early name for the land Walt Disney purchased where Disney World and Epcot now reside. The film follows a young girl and her friends, and the relationship between the 6-year-old and her mother as they struggle to survive hard times while living in the shadows of Disney World. The film premiered at the 2017 Director’s Fortnight in Cannes and was nominated for Independent Spirit Awards’ Best Feature and Best Director, and Baker was awarded Best Director of the Year by the New York Film Critics Circle.
Baker’s Feature Films include Four Letter Words, Take Out, Prince of Broadway, Starlet, Tangerine, and The Florida Project.
