Director Richard Linklater’s revered Before trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight) will be spotlighted at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The screenings, as well as a discussion headed by Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, and Linklater, takes place Sunday, February 9 at the historic Lobero Theatre.
Delpy received a Golden Globe nod for her work in Before Midnight. The actress, Linklater, and Hawke also garnered Oscar nods back in 2005 for Best Adapted Screenplay (Before Sunset).
“This trilogy creates one of the most authentic portrayals of love on the screen,” says SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling. “And it’s an undeniable gift to be able to experience all three movies in one day as well as to host its three talented creators.”
