Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, and Hagai Levi talk with Esther Perel about making “Scenes from a Marriage”
Free event sponsored by HBO Max
Explore the relationship at the heart of HBO’s reimagining of “Scenes from a Marriage” through an intimate discussion between the actors Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac, the writer and director Hagai Levi, and the relationship-focussed psychotherapist and author Esther Perel.
Jessica Chastain, a two-time Oscar nominee, will next be seen in HBO’s “Scenes from a Marriage,” an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s nineteen-seventies miniseries; as the title role in Searchlight’s “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”; and in “The 355,” an international spy thriller from Freckle Films, based on an original idea by Chastain. She will soon begin production on the limited series “George & Tammy,” starring as Tammy Wynette. Her past films include “Molly’s Game,” “Miss Sloane,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “A Most Violent Year,” “The Help,” “Interstellar,” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”
Oscar Isaac’s screen credits include the HBO miniseries “Show Me a Hero,” the Coen brothers’ film “Inside Llewyn Davis,” the acclaimed drama “A Most Violent Year,” and the most recent trilogy in the “Star Wars” series. He is the winner of a Golden Globe, an Independent Spirit Award, and a National Board of Review Award, among many other honors. His stage credits include the title role in the Public Theatre’s 2017 production of “Hamlet.” Isaac recently starred in “The Letter Room,” which was nominated for the 2021 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.
Hagai Levi, who was born in Sha'alvim and lives in Tel Aviv, Israel, wrote and directed HBO’s adaptation of “Scenes from a Marriage.” Levi co-created, co-directed, and co-produced the HBO miniseries “Our Boys,” which won fourteen Israeli Oscars, including best drama series, and he co-created and co-produced Showtime's “The Affair,” for which he won a Golden Globe. He also created, co-produced, and co-directed the Israeli series “BeTipul,” which was later remade in nineteen countries, including as the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning HBO series “In Treatment,” for which he served as an executive producer and director.
Esther Perel is a psychotherapist who is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and original voices on modern relationships. She’s a best-selling author, TED speaker, and host of the hit podcasts “Where Should We Begin?” and “How’s Work?” Fluent in nine languages, Perel coaches pairs around the world on relationship dynamics. Her latest project is Where Should We Begin—A Game of Stories.
