The John Crowley Interview

John Crowley has never read a whole Gene Wolfe story but he's read Hamlet's Mill and that is the only 20th-century work included in the Chrasmological Writings (The Book of the Long/Short Sun). So we talked to him about that and about related works. 

Then Craig and James talk about why James is so obsessed with the Wolfe/Hamlet's Mill connection.

Team Deakins sits down with friend and collaborator, John Crowley, director of such films as Boy A, Brooklyn, and The Goldfinch. We do a deep dive into the craft of storytelling and directing. John eloquently shares with us his thoughts on directing and the challenges he faces on set. We look at how you tell a story in film, the power of the human face in the closeup, what differences the budget makes, working with actors and the pleasure of the entire filmmaking process. We also talk about Boy A, an early film of John’s, which is a favorite film of ours. A great discussion with a passionate filmmaker.

In this episode, James is in Paris speaking to John Crowley, section chief of research, policy and foresight at UNESCO’s Sector for Social and Human Sciences. UNESCO is an agency for cooperation and a forum for debate, and John works to mobilise the human sciences to develop knowledge and action capacities for social transformation. He asks what is it to be human, and explores how we understand ourselves in the face of technological advancement and challenges. John believes there isn’t enough work being done at the intersection between digital and human sciences, and is working to move the debate outside of academic circles. He talks about the philosophy of technology, and shares stories about what happens when you don’t ask the anthropologist before attempting to transform peoples’ lives with tech.

Play

Our latest guest on Soundtracking is John Crowley, the Irish film and theatre director who previously brought us critical successes Intermission, Boy A and Brooklyn.
His new offering is The Goldfinch. Based on Donna Tart's novel of the same name, the narrative centres on Theo, a young man who takes a painting from a museum after his mother dies in a terrorist attack.
While the cinematography is provided by undisputed master of the art, Roger Deakins, John went for a relative novice in Trevor Gureckis for the score. As ever, you'll hear plenty of Trevor's work throughout the conversation.
