Why Daney Still Matters

A panel discussion about the late Serge Daney, often and plausibly cited as the most brilliant and important French film critic since Andre Bazin. Participants will include Bill Krohn, the Los Angeles correspondent for Cahiers du cinema (which Daney edited and wrote for) and author of the invaluable Hitchcock at Work filmmaker Jackie Raynal (Deux fois, Hotel New York), a close friend of Daney’s, and Steve Erickson, a New York-based film critic who has made much of Daney’s work in English available on his web site (www.home.earthlink.net/~steevee); the only reason why it won’t include me, who’s erroneously listed on the schedule, is that I’ll be participating in another panel discussion taking place in Chicago at the same time.
