On Set with Benoît Jacquot in New York
Benoît Jacquot will be in New York as the special guest of the School of Visual Arts (SVA) throughout the month of November 2007.
Following his stint as a guest of the DFFB Film School in Berlin in June, the French director clearly found his experience with the On Set with French Cinema program a positive one, having now accepted the SVA’s invitation to give classes to film students and share his filmmaking know-how with them.
This guest lectureship provides film students with a rare opportunity to participate in the pre-production of Jacquot’s upcoming feature film, Villa Amelia, which is slated to go into production in the spring of 2008, starring Isabelle Huppert. These work sessions will be included in a Making Of documentary of the film.
On Thursday November 8, Benoît Jacquot will also participate in a discussion with students from Columbia University, featuring a screening of his latest film The Untouchable.
