56th BFI London Film Festival - Day four


Day four of the 56th BFI London Film Festival saw Premiere Scene's Claire Bueno and William McLaughlan on the red carpet once again to speak to the filmmakers attending the festival.

Ginger and Rosa, a film about the friendship between two teenage girls in London during the 1960's, was the first to screen.  Claire spoke to both Ginger played by Elle Fanning and Rosa played by Alice Englert.  Producers Andrew Litvin and Christopher Sheppard discussed making the film and what interested them in working on the film.  We also had a chance to speak with the film's director Sally Potter.


Claire caught up with Thomas Vinterberg director of the stunning Dogme film Festen.  This is Vinterberg's first film in ten years.  The Hunt features actor Mads Mikkleson in a tour deforce performance as a teacher accused of inappropriate behavior to a child.


Finally we stepped into Room 237 and spoke with Rodney Ascher and Tim Kirk about their stunning documentary on master-filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's magnum opus The Shining.  Room 237 features conversations with five Kubrick theorists on the analysis and meaning of The Shining.


Roll on day five!
