KEITH GRIFFITHS : ANXIOUS VISIONS

A carte blanche for Keith Griffiths, a British producer and also a director, whose artistic choices have helped to shift cinema’s frontier, within and beyond the documentary genre. This inaugurates a new section of the Festival, designed to create an intimate and professional portrait of a producer, building on a freely chosen path through his or her work and inspirations. Keith Griffiths will be here to talk about the films he has chosen and explain what makes
them important to him.

À partir du 24 mars, les séances auront lieu en présence de Keith Griffiths.
