Hosted by director, screenwriter and contributing editor to Empire magazine, Nev Pierce
Director David Fincher, whose films Zodiac and Se7en explored the psychology of serial killers, presents another probing look into the psyche of some of America’s most infamous sociopaths with his upcoming Netflix series MINDHUNTER. One of the most revered filmmakers of a generation, Fincher began his career making pop promos with some of the world’s most influential artists, from Madonna to Michael Jackson. He has also directed a series of iconic ad campaigns for major international brands. As a feature filmmaker he has few peers, with a back catalogue including Fight Club, The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. MINDHUNTER marks Fincher’s return to the small screen after overseeing House of Cards for Netflix. We’re delighted to welcome Fincher to the BFI London Film Festival to discuss MINDHUNTER in the context of his career and the recent boom in long-form episodic drama.
