Cannes: The Agony and The Ecstasy
Moonstar Entertainment offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on the wheeling and dealing that takes place behind the glamour and the stars by following the "key players":
THE PRODUCER, Nik Powell (Fever Pitch, The Crying Game, Mona Lisa) will stop at nothing to raise financing for his next slate of films. Bluntness is second nature for Nik, but how will his ego cope with the fiasco of one of his films screening out of competition?
THE DIRECTOR, Stephan Elliott (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) sits uncomfortably as his film is screened. The lack of laughter in the audience could determine the success of Stephan’s future projects.
We also meet many other extraordinary characters as they travel along the Croisette:
THE JOURNALIST, Baz Bamigboye, who shies away from the huge parties and crowds in search of more ‘exclusive’ gatherings.
THE NEW PRODUCERS, who are in Cannes for the first time, trying to find a door that won’t slam in their faces.
THE CONCIERGE, who discretely gives his clients what they require.
From concierge to producer, this is an extraordinarily honest look behind the ‘silver screen’.
