An Evening with Guillermo del Toro, Author of The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy
The Strain, the first installment of a trilogy from the minds of bestselling author Chuck Hogan and award-winning director Guillermo del Toro, was an instant international bestseller and one of last summer's biggest hits. The duo has returned with The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy, in which the vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather, head of the CDC's team, leads a small group in the fight against the bloodthirsty beasts that roam the streets. With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his team, guided by Holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian and exterminator Vasily Fet and joined by a crew of ragtag gangsters--must combat a terror more horrible than humans can imagine: a fate worse than annihilation.
Guillermo del Toro has directed a wide variety of films, from action hero comic book adaptations (Hellboy, Blade II) to historical fantasy and horror films (Pan's Labyrinth, The Devi's Backbone) and is widely believed to be one of the most talented filmmakers working today. Across disciplines and formats his fascinations are many: "I have a sort of fetish for insects, clockwork, monsters, dark places and unborn things...and have always been in love with monsters. My fascination with them is almost anthropological...I study them, dissect them in many of my movies: I want to know how they work, what the inside of them looks like, what their sociology is."(Leonard Lopate interview). del Toro's future projects include book 3 of The Strain trilogy, remakes of the classic horror film, Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Slaughterhouse Five and a filming of H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness. What better venue to meet this brilliant artist than the JBL Theater inside the EMP?
