BFI Southbank’s ongoing CLOSE-UP series, which spotlights small but significant bodies of work by contemporary filmmakers, will this month focus on Chilean filmmaker SEBASTIÁN LELIO, whose films delve deep into notions of religious faith, family, grief and what it means to love someone. The CLOSE-UP coincides with the release of Lelio’s new film Disobedience (2017), which will play on extended run from Friday 30 November. It will also feature an In Conversation event with the director on Wednesday 28 November where Lelio will offer insight into his creative process and discuss his career so far, from his early short films at the Chilean Film School to his upcoming English-language remake of his own film Gloria, which will star Julianne Moore in the title role.
