IU Cinema presents: Jorgensen Filmmaker guest-Nicholas Winding Refn

Art As an Act of Violence.

“Wanna fight?” Fast emerging as one of modern cinema’s foremost provocateurs, Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn blends visceral genre thrills with a seductively cold vision of human dysfunction. Often featuring quiet men who commit savage acts while drifting through their respective worlds, his films are as hyper-violent as they are hyper-stylish—from the Viking-era brutality of Valhalla Rising to Bronson’s dark corners of the modern penal system to the postmodern urban underworlds in Drive and Only God Forgives. Don’t miss this Midwest opportunity to meet a unique cinematic force! Nicolas Winding Refn is scheduled to deliver a Jorgensen lecture and be in attendance for three of the four films the Cinema is screening.
