That situation made clear, I avoided the sensitive subject and ...
Chris D'Arienzo was unable to make it to the first AIFF but his film was and indeed proved a hit among viewers.
After the festival, I contacted my talented writer friend and asked him if he'd answer a few questions for me about the experience of making his first feature film. Ironically, I had asked to interview him 3 months before the festival for a research project I was doing for University of London but he was too busy so I wrote about David Lynch instead.
Thelma's Schoonmaker's father Bertram was employed as a clerical worker by the Standard Oil Company and worked abroad. She was born in Algiers, Algeria to American expatriates and raised in various countries, including on the Dutch-Caribbean island of Aruba.

As dean of the Cannes Festival Gilles Jacob would be expected to handle stars like we handle a road well traveled. Sharp turns are cleared without effort and intersections negotiated with eyes closed. Casualness should be a given for the president of the festival since every night for almost two weeks in May he stands at the top of the Lumière theatre steps to greet the casts and directors of the Selection films. “Ah, there’s Brad and Angelina, h...
Stuart Hazeldine: 2010 BAFTA nominee
“Begin.” So starts the emotional roller-coaster that is Stuart Hazeldine’s first full-length feature, Exam. Released this year, the film has earmarked the British writer/director as one to watch. Exam’s claustrophobic setting is a sublime blend of psychology and mystery-thriller. Despite its original premise, its influences come from a variety of sources throughout writer Stuart’s ca...

We have a dream!
We came from privileged backgrounds in the USA. Families intact, sufficient economic resources, university education, travel, etc. All of these we took for granted. When we were young, we thought everyone had the same lifestyle. As we matured, we became aware of how mistaken we were.
