Deauville Tributes

The thirty-third edition of the American Film Festival of Deauville will take place this year :
From Friday, August 30th to Sunday, September 9th, 2007
Cinema is an art and as such, has its codes and its history.
Just as music didn’t start with the Beatles, cinema didn’t start with George Lucas.
There was Mozart, and even before, Guillaume de Machaux ; just as for the cinema there were Griffith, McCarey, Keaton, Chaplin, Capra, Ida Lupino…
Here is the screenplay the Festival wants to direct: the History of American films,through its early 20th century movies until now.
This venture could not be organised without the help of the Cinémathèque
française, whose true nature is to pass on the dreams of the cinema.
Thus, the American Film Festival of Deauville will explore, year after year, its legacy.
The Cinémathèque française will extend this work by programming in Paris our
complete selection of classics.
From Deauville to Paris-Bercy, all paths lead to the stars.

THE AMERICAN NIGHTS
The lights of Deauville shine day and night
For the first time, in a Festival of this size, films will be screened day and night for 10 days non-stop.
Le Public Système Cinéma has thus chosen to team up with the Cinémathèque
française so as to honour film genres with an eclectic programme including
westerns, comedies, films noir, fantastic, gangster films…
We want all kinds of audiences to be able to discover spontaneously, intensely and at all times classic films to brighten our nights and our memories. In this way, we wish to give back to theatres the role it always had for film lovers: a cult venue for films, dedicated to living the present, where eyes are raised to their favourite art form.
A special pass exclusively dedicated to the “American nights” will be available with a
price of 10 euros for 10 days.
TRIBUTE to IDA LUPINO
in her memory
Daughter of composer and librettist Stanley Lupino and music-hall star Connie
Emerald, Ida Lupino was born on February 4, 1918 in London. A pupil at the
Clarence House School of Brighton, she soon becomes interested in theatre and
writes a play when aged 7. She enters the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art at 13 and
one year later she is touring in England. Filmmaker Allan Dwan spots her and hires
her for the feature “Her First Affair” (1933).
Then Ida Lupino leaves England for Hollywood. She makes her first film appearance
there in 1934, next to swimming champion Buster Crabbe in “Search For Beauty” by
Erle C. Kenton. The following year she plays a more important part in Lewis
Milestone’s musical “Paris In Spring”. William Wellman directs her in 1939’s drama
“The Light That Failed”. The following year she signs with Warner Bros. and from
now on focuses on dramatic roles. Ida Lupino receives in 1943 the New York Film
Critics Award for her performance in “The Hard Way” by Vincent Sherman.
In 1948, Ida Lupino marries writer Collier Young and the following year they found
Emerald Productions, an independent filmmaking company, which is to become The
Filmmakers. The same year, she co-writes with Paul Jarrico the screenplay for “Not
Wanted” which veteran Elmer Clifton is to direct. But he suffers from bad health
problems and when the shooting has just started she takes over as a director and
finishes the film though she’s not credited for it. The movie is a success and Ida
Lupino can go on with this new career as well as being an actress.
She will thus direct independent films, tackling themes that other movies didn’t deal
with: the condition of being paraplegic in “Never Fear” (1949), rape in “The Outrage”
(1950), bigamy in “The Bigamist” (1953) or kidnapping in “The Hitch-hiker” (1953).
The bankruptcy of her company in 1953 stops her filmmaker’s career for a while,
but five years later she’s directing again for television, and in 1966 she’s back with
“The Trouble with Angels”, directing Rosalind Russell in a typical Hollywood comedy
for the big screen.
Ida Lupino died on August 3, 1995 in Burbank, California.

TRIBUTE TO SYDNEY LUMET
in his presence
Born on June 25, 1924, in Philadelphia, the son of an actor and a dancer, Sidney Lumet
made his stage debut at age four at the Yiddish Art Theater in New York. After playing
many roles on Broadway, he started in 1947 an off-Broadway acting troupe that included
former members of Lee Strasberg's Actors Studio as Yul Brynner and Eli Wallach.
Three years later, Sydney Lumet is a TV director, piloting some 250 TV films and shows,
often live. He then makes his stage directing debut, as well as his feature film directing
debut with the critical and financial hit “12 Angry Men” (1957), which won the Golden
Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and earned three Academy Award nominations for Best
Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay.
Treating socially relevant themes, Lumet tackles topics dealing with the American society
all through his long career, such as police corruption, (“Serpico”, 1973, “Prince of the
City”, 1981 and “Night falls on Manhattan”, 1997), television (“Dog day afternoon”, 1975,
and “Network”, 1976), justice (“12 Angry Men”, 1957, “The Verdict”, 1982, “A Stranger
among us”, 1992, and “Guilty as Sin”, 1993), MacCarthysm (« Daniel », 1983), alcoolism
(“The Morning After”, 1986) or racism (“Q & A”, 1990).
Besides some fifty Academy Award nominations earned with his films, Sidney Lumet
was nominated three more times for Best Director for “Dog day afternoon” (1975),
“Network” (1976) and “The Verdict” (1982). In 1993 he received the Directors
Guild’s D. W. Griffith Award for an unusually distinguished body of work. The
Museum of Modern Art in New York has saluted him with a retrospective. In 2005,
Sidney Lumet was awarded an Honorary Academy Award by the Academy Board of
Governors.
His best-seller “Making Movies” is widely considered to be the finest, clearest and
most direct book ever written concerning the mysteries of how movies are made.
As well as this tribute, the Festival will screen his new feature, “Before the Devil
Knows You’re Dead”, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke and Albert Finney.
“Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” is his forty-fourth feature film.
The festival will also screen other films by Sidney Lumet.

After Stanley Kubrick in 2001 and Steven Spielberg in 2004, this year the
Festival will honour Gus Van Sant, in his presence, by screening his complete
oeuvre.
A tribute to this modern film-artist along with two other established masters, Ida
Lupino and Sydney Lumet, will be made before the revelations of the competition.
A competition true to its tradition – after revealing Edward Burns with The Brothers
McMullen, Tom Di Cillo with Living in Oblivion , the Wachowski brothers with Bound, Paul
Thomas Anderson with Sydney, Todd Solondz with Welcome to the Dollhouse, Neil
LaBute with In the Company of Men, Darren Aronofsky with Pi, Amos Kollek with Sue,
Spike Jonze with Being John Malkovich, Christopher Nolan with Memento, John Cameron
Mitchell with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Duncan Tucker with Transamerica, Paul Haggis
with Crash , Jonathan Dayton et Valerie Faris with Little Miss Sunshine – of uncovering
new talents.
THE COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY OF GUS VAN SANT
in his presence
Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Gus Van Sant earned a BA at the Rhode Island School of
Design, before spending two years directing commercials for New York advertising
agencies. His first feature film “Mala Noche” (1985) won the Los Angeles Film Critics
Award for Best Independent Film.
His body of work includes many hallmarks of 90’s independent cinema, notably
“Drugstore Cowboy” (1989), “My Own Private Idaho” (1991), and “Even Cowgirls Get
the Blues” (1993). The black comedy “To Die For” (1995), with Nicole Kidman, was
screened at the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals. Gus Van Sant received a Best
Director Academy Award nomination for “Good Will Hunting” (1997), which received
a total of nine Academy Award nominations. His next film was a remake of Alfred
Hitchcock’s classic thriller, “Psycho” (1998), which was the first shot-for-shot
recreation of a film. The new millennium brought the release of the literary drama
“Finding Forrester” (2000) and the improvisational “Gerry” (2002), which he wrote
with the film’s stars Matt Damon and Casey Affleck. His next film, “Elephant” (2003),
won the Palme d’Or, Best Director prize, and National Education prize at the 2003
Cannes Film Festival. Two years later, “Last days” is premiered in competition in
Cannes as well.
Gus Van Sant also makes evocative short films, which have been winning awards at
film festivals worldwide. These works include his 1982 adaptation of William S.
Burroughs’ short story, “The Discipline of D.E.”. In 1996 he directed Allen Ginsberg
reading his own poem, “Ballad of the Skeletons”, to the music of Paul McCartney and
Philip Glass. Other acclaimed shorts include “Five Ways to Kill Yourself” (1987),
“Thanksgiving Prayer” (1991), a re-teaming with Burroughs, and “Easter” (1999),
scripted by Harmony Korine.
Eventually he settled in Portland, Oregon, where in addition to directing and
producing, he pursued his other interests – painting, photography, and writing. In
1995 he published a collection of photography entitled “108 portraits” and two
years later published his first novel, “Pink”, a satire on filmmaking. A long-time
musician himself, he has directed music videos for many top recording artists
including David Bowie, Elton John, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hanson.
His twelfth feature film, “Paranoid Park” won this year the 60th Anniversary Prize of
the Cannes Film Festival.
