Presenting their films at the London Sundance Film Festival, Miguel Arteta talks about his film Beatriz at Dinner, a drama about class conflict and environmentalism featuring John Lithgow and Salma Hayek, while Michael Almereyda discusses his elegiac science-fiction movie Marjorie Prime, adapted from the play of the same name and starring Lois Smith and Tim Robbins. Plus, with translation by Jason Yu, Korean director Bong Joon-Ho talks about his latest film Okja, which proved controversial when it screened at Cannes in May, and features Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal in an uproarious tale of GM food.
