The Ghett'Out Film Festival coming to New York (at BAM) and Boston will reveal independent French talents emerging on the outskirts of the classic system in France. Mostly self-educated, from diverse cultural backgrounds and often deprived neighborhoods, these filmmakers are the pioneers of an underground Nouvelle Vague. Three young filmmakers present short films and converse about their work with U.S. filmmaker Charles Burnett and Phil Watts.
Partial support provided by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French-American Foundation
