A24’s Causeway: Directing Jennifer Lawrence with first-time director Lila Neugebauer and producer Justine Ciarrocchi

Today, we have two exceptional first-time filmmakers who attached Jennifer Lawrence & Brian Tyree Henry to their script, got A24 on board and shot a wonderful little feature film called Causeway (2022) in only a few months. Our hosts, Dom Lenoir & Conor Boru, welcome director Lila Neugebauer & producer Justin Ciarrocchi!

They chat about topics we have never covered on the podcast before. They discuss

–         working with Jennifer Lawrence

–         exploring PTSD in film

–         the difference between directing theatre vs feature films

–         developing the script

–         the biggest challenges as a producer

–         collaborating with A24 & Apple

Get ready for an amazing conversation! Sit back, relax and listen to our lovely chat with Lila Neugebauer & Justine Ciarrocchi.
