In response to a rapidly globalizing community in the film industry, a selection of French and American professionals will discuss the ethics of filmmaking abroad. What are the challenges and implications of adapting a story that inhabits a different point of view? What does it take to master issues that are anchored in a different country or culture than the one you were born in, and how do you legitimize this process? Participants include Eva Husson (Girls of the Sun), Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Mustang), Brady Corbet (Vox Lux), and Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire (A Prayer Before Dawn). This talk is presented by HBO, in partnership with French in Motion.
