SXSW Keynote: Darren Aronofsky

Aronofsky has built a long directorial career as a unique and provocative artist who has maintained an indie sensibility even while helming such high-profile films as The Wrestler, Black Swan, and Noah. At SXSW 2018, he was coming off the successful Fall 2017 release of Mother! and used his Keynote presentation to explain his “10 Commandments of Indie Filmmaking.”
