James Ponsoldt’s END OF THE TOUR AFS Q&A and Film Stage Interview

Director James Ponsoldt joined us at AFS on August 6 for an advance screening of THE END OF THE TOUR, the new film based on a series of encounters between author David Foster Wallace and journalist David Lipsky. Wallace is portrayed by Jason Segal and Kipsy is played by Jesse Eisenberg.

Here, AFS Associate Artistic Director Holly Herrick talks to Ponsoldt and University of Texas Professor, and author of “The Legacy Of David Foster Wallace” Heather Houser. There’s a lot of discussion about David Foster Wallace here.

Also that night, Bill Graham of The Film Stage caught up with Ponsoldt. Their interview is here.
THE END OF THE TOUR is now playing in Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, Violet Crown and the Regal Arbor.
