Legendary writer and director James Ivory (Howards End, The Remains of the Day) joins us for an extended introduction and audience Q&A to this year's art-house sensation Call Me By Your Name, a tender love story set in 1980s Italy for which he wrote the award-winning screenplay.
James Ivory is not English, as is widely believed. He worked closely with producer Ismail Merchant and screenwriter Ruth Jhabvala at Merchant Ivory Productions. Together they were responsible for A Room With a View (86), Mr. & Mrs. Bridge (91), Howards End (93), The Remains of the Day (94), The Golden Bowl (00) and 15 other feature films. In addition, Merchant Ivory produced another eight feature films with other writers. Most recently, Ivory produced and wrote the screenplay for Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name (17), which is based on André Aciman's novel of the same title.
