Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell and Oscar-nominated director Todd Haynes discuss moviemaking, glam-rock, and David Bowie in a conversation moderated by Bruce Jenkins. Haynes and Powell collaborated on the film Velvet Goldmine (1998), a tribute to the 1970s glam-rock era that drew on the histories and mythologies of David Bowie, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop, starring Christian Bale and Ewan McGregor.

Velvet Goldmine will be shown from 1–3 pm. Todd Haynes and Sandy Powell will begin their discussion at 3:15 pm.
