Join us as we sit down with actor and activist Javier Bardem for an intimate conversation about his career and his latest films, mother! and Loving Pablo, at this year's Festival.
In Conversation With... Javier Bardem
Javier Bardem is an artistically and politically minded force of nature. A household name in Hollywood, art house, and genre in both English- and Spanish-language cinema, he lives and breathes his craft. Always eager to take on diverse and challenging roles, Bardem's long list of memorable performances include The Sea Inside, No Country for Old Men, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Biutiful, and Skyfall. A dedicated professional, he's worked with an impressive roster of luminary filmmakers: Julian Schnabel, the Coen Brothers, Woody Allen, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Terrence Malick, Ridley Scott... the list goes on. Equal parts charisma and compassion, his work on The Sons of the Clouds: The Last Colony brought him to the UN to plead the case of the refugees of the Western Sahara. Hear from this truly galvanizing figure as he speaks candidly about his life, career, and the two films — Loving Pablo and mother! — that he brings to the Festival this year.
