Screen Talk: Guillermo del Toro

We welcome the filmmaker to discuss his career and his latest film, The Shape of Water an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America, which screens as our American Airlines Gala.

After breaking onto the scene with visceral, dark supernatural horror films Cronos and The Devil's Backbone, Guillermo del Toro moved into commercial American moviemaking, directing Blade II and garnering acclaim for his two Hellboy movies. However, it was his darkly beautiful masterpiece Pan's Labyrinth that really cemented the filmmaker's reputation as one of the most creative and visionary artists of his generation, whose distinctive style introduced an exciting visual poetry to fantasy filmmaking. Following the giant robots vs giant monsters action outing Pacific Rim and gothic romance Crimson Peak, the Festival is delighted to welcome one of Mexico's most celebrated filmmakers to discuss his career and his latest film, The Shape of Water an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America, which screens as our American Airlines Gala.
