On this NYWIFT Talks: Director Maggie Gyllenhaal talks about her latest film, The Lost Daughter. 

Alone on a seaside vacation, Leda (Olivia Colman) becomes consumed with a young mother and daughter as she watches them on the beach. Unnerved by their compelling relationship, (and their raucous and menacing extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks Leda into the strange and ominous world of her own mind, where she is forced to face the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and their consequences. Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Lost Daughter is a stunning directorial debut.

The film will be available in theaters December 17, and on Netflix December 31.


On this week’s NYWIFT Talks, the pandemic has started the conversation on changing the work environment in many different careers. But, what about the crew behind the scenes? We speak with IATSE members in film/television to discuss unhealthy work environments in the industry and what the strike means to its members. 

This conversation is moderated by NYWIFT President Cynthia López.
