In a Rendez-Vous lineup that features an abundance of extraordinary performances from women, two names stand out: Juliette Binoche, a much-acclaimed icon of French and international cinema, anchoring new films from directors Claire Denis (Fire) and Emmanuel Carrère (Between Two Worlds); and Déborah Lukumuena, a singular talent and rising star who embodies the best of a new generation of young French actors, performing opposite Gérard Depardieu in Constance Meyer’s Robust. Join us for a conversation in which we’ll explore two women’s professional trajectories and creative influences, their philosophies and priorities in selecting new projects, and their respective relationships with the American film industry.
