Costa carte blanche

Just recently while looking for any information on De Son Appartement, the new film by Jean-Claude Rousseau, I came across the program for the Festival International du Documentaire de Marseille, held back in early July, which sounds like the place to have been. Pedro Costa was the guest of honour: in addition to a complete retrospective of Costa's films, the festival also screened a number of his carte blanche selections:

Night of the Demon (Jacques Tourneur)
Beauty #2 (Andy Warhol)
Jaime (
António Reis)
Os Verdes Anos (Paolo Rocha)
Billie Holiday sings 'Fine and Mellow' (segment from The Sound of Jazz )
From the Clouds to the Resistance (Straub-Huillet)
Unknown Chaplin (Kevin Brownlow / David Gill)

Also, in the same festival, Apichatpong Weerasethakul presided over a jury which awarded prizes to De Son Appartement (Rousseau), He Fengming (Wang Bing), and Autohystoria (Raya Martin), all of which I long to see...

I have never heard of this festival before, but I think it sounds more interesting than the Venice Film Festival. I also have never heard of Jean-Claude Rousseau, but I search the internet and find a little article about him in www.ncncine.com . I think he is a very interesting filmmaker.

Patricio Guzman, Angela Schanelec, and Tahani Rached are also in the jury at this festival. Wow! I think whoever organizes this festival really cares and knows about cinema.
