Lets Get Small
Joining us in Edinburgh today are my co-director Paul Duane and Bernard Natan’s grand-daughter, the wonderful Lenick Philippot. Craig McCall, our executive producer and the maker of the wonderful Jack Cardiff profile CAMERAMAN, got in on Friday. All set for our first public screening on UK soil tomorrow. Screening today — the first in the Richard Fleischer retrospective, FANTASTIC VOYAGE and THE GIRL IN THE RED VELVET SWING. The third in the Gremillon season, the silent LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS, with live accompaniment. Mark Cousins’ follow-up to THE STORY OF FILM, entitled A STORY OF CHILDREN AND FILM — his best documentary about cinema yet. And COMRADE KIM GOES FLYING, the first foreign fiction movie shot inside North Korea. My former student Vicky Mohieddeen worked on this one!
But also — FRANCES HA; HARRY DEAN STANTON, PARTLY FICTION; UPSTREAM COLOUR; WHEN NIGHT FALLS; THE BLING RING; WHITE EPILEPSY… Chris Fujiwara continues to do a great job, including his chairing the Jean Gremillon symposium yesterday. We wondered going in if such an event would have made more sense at the end of the retrospective, to sum up, but no — it gave us all food for thought and things to watch out for in the upcoming movies.
