Mark Friedberg

Gotham Tribute

Production designer Friedberg’s resume reads like a brief history of independent film. He got his start during the movement’s early ’90s heyday, cutting his teeth on a noteworthy, low-budget pics such as Alexandre Rockwell’s “In the Soup.” As his reputation grew, so did his budgets. But he’s remained committed to cutting-edge, director-driven projects. Frequent collaborators include Ang Lee (“The Ice Storm,” “Ride With the Devil”), Jim Jarmusch (“Broken Flowers,” “Coffee and Cigarettes”) and Wes Anderson (“The Life Aquatic,” “The Darjeeling Limited”).

“The Gotham tribute is as high an honor as I can imagine,” says the New York native. “I am an independent; those are the films I have worked on as well as those that I usually go to see, so this recognition from my community of like-minded filmmakers is huge.”
