Q&A: Nicolas Winding Refn Unleashes His Inner 16-Year-Old Girl in THE NEON DEMON
Posted on June 29, 2016
For Nitehawk’s fifth anniversary on June 21, we were proud to host one of our favorite directors, Danish genre provocateur Nicolas Winding Refn, for a Q&A following his new film THE NEON DEMON. Speaking with Nitehawk film programmer John Woods, Refn discussed Elle Fanning channeling his inner 16-year-old girl, meeting Paul Verhoeven, and editing to maximize the camp quality of the film. “This is a comedy,” he says, “it’s supposed to be funny.” Cue awkward chuckles from the crowd.
