NYFF Press Conference for Eastwood’s Hereafter
Showing no signs of slowing down after turning 80 earlier this year, filmmaker Clint Eastwood held the attention of a room full of journalists at the New York Film Festival press conference for Hereafter over the weekend, hours before the drama closed the 48th annual fest.
