    Drama

    The film depicts the life of a television star journalist who is caught in a spiral of events that will lead to her downfall. Between drama and comedy, France seeks to parallel the intimate and public crisis of a young woman with a picture of contemporary France2. In particular, the film aims to satirize the treatment of information by television channels.

    To make a film, I need to go back to what nurtures me, which is the relationship between art and religion in painting.

    Bruno Dumont (born in France) is a French film Director. To date, he has directed several feature films, all of which border somewhere between realistic drama and the avant-garde. His first feature film THE LIFE OF JESUS was selected at Directors' Fortnight. His films have won several awards at the Cannes films Festival. Two of Dumont's films have won the Grand Prix award: both L’HUMANITÉ and FLANDERS (2006). The only other director who has twice won the Cannes Grand Prix is Andrei Tarkovsky. Dumont's HADEWIJCH won the 2009 Prize of the International Critics (FIPRESCI Prize) for Special Presentation at the Toronto Film Festival, and will be distributed in France in 2009, and by IFC in the U.S. in 2010. CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915 (2013) screened in Competition in Berlin. LI’L QUINQUIN (2014) wolrd premiered in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs' Special Screenings. In 2016, SLACK BAY was presented in Competition at the Cannes International Film Festival, and in 2017, so was his film JEANNETTE, THE CHILDHOOD OF JOAN OF ARC.
