Each year, the Walker Art Center selects a director of note for its Walker Dialogue and Retrospective Series, and hosts a variety of screenings and talks celebrating the artist. Past talents have included Ang Lee, Joel and Ethan Coen, Steve McQueen, and Jodie Foster.

This year's featured artist is Christopher Nolan, a filmmaker known for the intense performances he gets from his stars, as well as his mind-fuck storytelling and dark summer blockbusters. His movies include Inception, The Prestige, Interstellar, and the most recent Batman reboot.
Before the screenings start up, Nolan will be in town May 5 to chat about his work with Variety chief film critic Scott Foundas.
