Atom Egoyan  March 12, 1995

In Canadian director Atom Egoyan's early films, such as Family Viewing and Speaking Parts, technology—in the form of home video and surveillance cameras—played a key role in his complex, multilayered storylines. Yet as his career progressed, it became clear that Egoyan was less interested in the workings of technology than with tangled nature of familial and personal relationships in the modern world. In 1995, Egoyan spoke at the Museum after the release of his breakthrough film Exotica, and discussed the formal themes as well as the deeply personal concerns of his films, including voyeurism, memory, obsession, and intimacy.
