Veteran New York independent producer Christine Vachon joins us in Austin to present Todd Haynes’ seminal ‘50s-set melodrama, FAR FROM HEAVEN (2002). Vachon will discuss her long career in producing and collaborating with Todd Haynes, Kimberly Pierce, Paul Schrader, and other luminaries in a post-screening Q&A.


“With tact and care, the movie digs into all the subjects that lay concealed below the surface when Max Ophuls and Douglas Sirk were filming their own melodramas in the nineteen-fifties.” – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“With a classic storytelling style bordering on corniness, a deft tragicomic touch and a heroic refusal to use the safety net of irony, Haynes has managed to produce something of a gem.” – Barbara Ellen, The Times (UK)
