DCIFF’s Interaction With Christopher Nolan about Oppenheimer 

DCIFF Executive Director Deirdre Evans-Pritchard was joined by our wonderful summer 2023 intern Amani Onyekwere at a talk by director Christopher Nolan hosted by The Washington Post. In town to receive an Award, Nolan spoke at length about his last film Oppenheimer.  

Asked about his interest in storytelling through cutting up and manipulating time, he said that film and digital imaging has a unique relationship to how it can play with time and he likes to explore this. The process of film editing is time manipulation.  He also expressed surprise that Oppenheimer had become a billion dollar success story.  And we learned that he loves to drink tea.
