Hatched presents the first in a two-part video series of the Fishing with John…with John Lurie in Person Q&A at Nitehawk…

Fishing with John…Q&A with John Lurie: Part I from Nitehawk Cinema on Vimeo.

On November 15 last month, Nitehawk was honored to host a truly special one-night event with estimable John Lurie. We screened three episodes of his cult-classic television series Fishing With John (featuring Tom Waits, Willem Dafoe, and Dennis Hopper) to a sold-out crowd and then John Lurie joined us for a heartfelt, candid, humorous, touching, and insider chat about everything from the mysterious narrator of Fishing with John to the appalling 2010 New Yorker profile to his interest in painting. In a recent Capital New York article, Lurie said that in this screening and discussion he would “reacquaint myself with the world a bit.” And as you can see in these videos of his Q&A with Nitehawk’s John Woods, he did so quite brilliantly.
