Greatdirectors

The best party I went to in Cannes was thrown one afternoon by rookie director Angela Ismailos after a screening of her doc Great Directors, in which she sits down and talks politics, history and Neo-Realism with Bernardo Bertolucci, the influence of Federico Fellini with David Lynch, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder with Todd Haynes, among others. Cinetic Media is selling the film.

There was plenty of yummy food, wine, music and dancing. All in all, a taste of how a globe-trotting intellectual socialite lives.

I enjoyed talking to French director Catherine Breillat at the boat party. The movie shows what an outsider she was, from a very early age, because her films were too sexy, even for the French. She admitted that while she is not now a member of the French film establishment, exactly, she's accepted.

I interview Ismailos briefly about her film:
