As a satirist, British producer-writer-director Armando Iannucci is peerless. His targets are invariably big, such as the British government in The Thick of It; the White House administration in the feature In the Loop and the internationally-renowned series Veep. For each production, Iannucci has delivered a heady brew of satire, sarcasm and absurdity and a host of brilliantly observed characters, replete with human faults, contradictions and eccentricities. During his talk, Iannucci will discuss the art of producing satire. His latest film, The Death of Stalin, will be the closing film of IFFR.
This Big Talk was moderated by film critic Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian).
