Alchemy in Invisible Worlds: Interview with “The Rocket” director Kim Mordaunt

Both “The Rocket” director Kim Mordaunt and his 10-year old protagonist – Ahlo – have a gift for turning the rarely-seen countryside of Laos into a playground for the imagination. The film is a visually engaging, triumph-of-the-underdog piece, where ingenuity can summon beauty and power from a land littered with military debris. As the film opens, we witness the birth of young Ahlo and his twin brother, who is stillborn. According to Laotian superstition, twins are sai...

Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places: Interview with Jonathan Gurfinkel of "SIX ACTS"

One of the young talents at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival is Israeli TV Director Jonathan Gurfinkel who presents his startling and disturbing first feature, Six Acts (Shesh Peamin). Powered by the haunting performance of young actress Sivan Levy, it is the story of Gilly, a sixteen year old girl who transfers to a new Tel-Aviv high school and looks for love in all the wrong places. As Gilly's quest for acceptance leads her into ever sadder and more dangerous situations, the f...

Interview with TANYA WEXLER, the director of HYSTERIA at Tribeca 2012

user
    Fest 21 (Suzanne Lynch) sat down with Tanya Wexler, the director of the frothy new romantic comedy Hysteria, starring Maggie Gyllanhaal and Hugh Dancy, about the invention of a novel treatment for women suffering from the broadly defined illness of hysteria in Victorian England. Dancy plays Mortimer Granville, a young doctor who earnestly wishes to advance the medical profession and cares greatly about new discoveries like germs. He soon finds himself working...

INTERVIEW WITH MALGOSKA SZUMOWSKA & JOANNA KULIG of “Elles” at Tribeca 2012 Festival

user
Fest 21 (Suzanne Lynch) sat down with Malgoska Szumowska and Joanna Kulig, the director/co-writer and young co-star of ELLES, a film in which Juliette Binoche plays a journalist from Elle magazine (and bourgeouis housewife) who becomes too close to her subjects while researching an article on student prostitution in Paris. The film (which hints at voyeurism repeatedly in brief gotcha moments) features a stringy-haired and perpetually stressed-out Anne (as tightly plugged into her...

INTERVIEW WITH DANIEL SCHECHTER (Director/Co-Writer, Supporting Characters at Tribeca 2012 Festival)

user
  Fest 21 (Suzanne Lynch) sat down with Daniel Schechter, the director and co-writer of SUPPORTING CHARACTERS, a low-budget indie that's set to become a darling of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The film, which pleases due to its skillful, often unexpected writing and the deft comic timing of its cast, tells the story of two best friends, both film editors, who must repair a film that's not playing well in test screenings. In the process of working on the post-production of the fi...

INTERVIEW WITH JIM BUTTERWORTH of NAKED EDGE FILMS (Gone, Donor Unknown at Tribeca 2011 Festival)

user
Fest 21 (Suzanne Lynch) sat down with Jim Butterworth, the president and co-founder of Naked Edge Films, a documentary film production company based in New York City and Boulder, Colorado, to discuss the two documentaries his company has at the 2011 Tribeca festival -- GONE and DONOR UNKNOWN.   Jim, you have a background in technology as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist. How does this background translate to what you are doing with Naked Edge Films? ...

Metropia Director Tarik Saleh talks with Fest 21 about 9/11, why he set Metropia in Europe, and Paris Hilton… (Tribeca 2010)

user
FEST21 (Suzanne Lynch): You said at the press conference, "(Metropia) is about those years when the world went insane, it's about the past. And when you are afraid, you do irrational things." But Metropia is set in 2024... so to what degree is it about the past? TARIK SALEH: When 9/11 happened... I think that, in Europe, for example, we have a tradition of criticizing the United States, almost on a reflex basis. It doesn't matter what the United States does or how it reacts ...

SPORK: Or How to Survive Cherry Hill Junior High with Camp and Heart (Tribeca 2010)

user
Starting on April 30th, SPORK, a charming and quirky film about a 14-year old hermaphrodite navigating the trecherous social landscape of junior high school, will be available for download via Tribeca's Virtual Film Festival program (http://www.tribecafilm.com/virtual/).  Fans of underdog stories everywhere should definitely push the button on this one.   From the moment one lays eyes on the frizzy-haired Spork in her trailer park home -- complete with 3D sunglasses, stuff...

Tribeca Round Table: Brilliante Mendoza of LOLA (Tribeca 2010)

user
"I was really into mainstream," says Brilliante Mendoza, the director of LOLA, of his career start as an advertising art director and production designer to mainstream Asian directors, "more the glamorous, glossy type of world (as) compared to what I am doing (now)." But Mendoza's attention has turned to what he calls "real-time" storytelling, films based on real life stories. LOLA ("grandmother" in Tagalog) was inspired by a news item he s...

HEARTBREAKER: Chemistry In The House (Tribeca 2010)

user
"It took much longer to get him (Romain Duris) than any woman I've ever known," says HeartBreaker director Pascal Chaumeil, only half-conscious of his double entendre in English, as he speaks of his lead actor's initial reluctance to attempt this romantic comedy with Vanessa Paradis in a post-screening Q & A session. "It was essential to find the right couple. Chemistry is everything." Lucky for Chaumeil, the magic potion is there between Juliette, a former w...

Genie In a Bottle - METROPIA and ROAD, MOVIE (Tribeca 2010)

user
Atma Hair Oil or D'Angst Shampoo, M'am? The keys to the last two Tribeca films I've seen, Tarik Saleh's innovative new Metropia and the enjoyable Indian coming of-age tale, Road, Movie, both sound like they might be sold at your local pharmacy. For young Vishnu, Atma Hair Oil (the family business) represents the cultural roots he would rather ditch like a parent on the first day of school, as he sets out for the coast in a dilapidated old truck. The truck, to be sold to a coas...

MICMACS: La Jolie Bande de La Récup - Stylized Salvage (Tribeca 2010)

user
Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Amélie fame, brings back his franco-francais blend of winsome and satire in this highly stylized film about two arms dealers, a man with a bullet lodged in his brain named Basel, and a team of quirky outcasts from the junkyard.    Almost comic book in it's attention to visual detail (think "Tin-Tin"), MICMACS original French title,  translates as "non-stop madness." The madness being the greed and inse...
