Director Olivier Assayas joins us to discuss his new film “Personal Shopper,” about Maureen (Kristen Stewart), a young American living in Paris who may have the psychic ability to communicate with spirits, just like her twin brother, Lewis, who recently passed away. She starts receiving mysterious messages coming from an unknown source. Assayas, who shared the Best Director prize at this year's Cannes for the film, teamed up again with Stewart after their critically acclaimed collaboration on “Clouds of Sils Maria.”

"Personal Shopper" opens on March 10th at Lincoln Plaza and the IFC Center.
