This morning I went to a panel on American Directors. Lee Daniels, director of Precious (previously known as Push), and Lynn Shelton, director of Humpday, discussed their work and how they navigate the independent cinema world. Quite an interesting panel and I’ll post an article on it later today.
Both films were the talk of the Sundance Film Festival in January and this weekend they became the talk of Cannes. Hopefully I’ll get to see them before I leave but both films will be released in the US by the end of the year.
