My planned Cannes 2016 coverage so far (work in progress) includes:
-an interview with Jim JARMUSCH for Dazed & Confused. The “enfant terrible”, or better said, “vraiment indépendent” of American independent cinema participates with 2 films, Paterson, in the Official Competition and Gimme Danger in the Midnight section;
-a story around Chloë Sevigny’s first (short) film as a director, Kitty, that is screening during the closing night of Critics Week – for Dazed & Confused
-a full report on the state of VR technology, immersive storytelling and the latest VR projects to be presented in Cannes – for Dazed & Confused
-an article on Romanian cinema based on Cristi Puiu‘s SIERANEVADA and Cristian Mungiu‘s BACALAUREAT for Little White Lies
-several festival dispatches for VICE Romania with my favourite films at Cannes 2016
Bon festival à tous!
