NEW BEVERLY PODCAST —Tarantino Tells Films to See Before July 26th

Cinema is dead. Good thing then that we have Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood" to serve as our mutual cinematic memorial service. QT says this is his last film. There's your proof that Cinema is truly over. I'll never forget meeting Quentin by the press lockers in the Palais in Cannes the day after the premiere of "Reservoir Dogs." I'd slept in my tux the night before when I shook T's hand and told him how his movie had kicked my ass. He said, "that's exactly what I wanted to hear."

Quentin was generous enough to record a three-hour podcast for his L.A. cinema The New Beverly. Check it out!

FOCUS ON CANNES 2019: AN EASY GIRL —REBECCA ZLOTOWSKI

An Easy Girl

"Naima is 16 years old and lives in Cannes. While she gives herself the summer to choose what she wants to do in life, her cousin Sofia, with the attractive way of life, comes to spend the holidays with her. Together, they will live an unforgettable summer."

"Une Fille Facile" won the Director's Fortnight prize for Best French-Language movie.

FOCUS ON CANNES 2019: LES MISÉRABLES —LADJ LY

Les_miserables

"Stéphane has recently joined the Anti-Crime Brigade in Montfermeil, in the Paris suburbs. Alongside his new colleagues Chris and Gwada – both experienced members of the team – he quickly discovers tensions running high between neighborhood gangs.

When they find themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures their every movement, their every action… Inspired by the riots of 2005, César nominee and Kourtrajmé collective member Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the same place where Victor Hugo chose to set “Les Misérables” in 1862. More than 150 years later, the similarities between today’s angry, hoodie-wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear."

LADJ LY

Ladj Ly's debut narrative feature makes a splash at Cannes by having his debut feature included in the Competition for the Palme d'Or. Festival buzz says Ly's impressive film could take the Palme. The Parisian Ly has worked as an actor and documentary filmmaker, and is notably one of the founding members of the Kourtrajamé artists collective that includes a free film school open to students over 18. Ladj Ly seems to be on the verge of rich career as an auteur.
