“10 In America”:

The ten filmmakers focus on the way we experience the present, and they explore a relationship with reality that ranges from the bluntness of documentary filmmaking to the magic of fiction. Together, they give us a wide-ranging and dynamic view of contemporary French cinema: varied, hybrid, challenging, and multicultural.

Catherine Bizern is the anthology’s artistic director. As Managing Director of the Entrevues festival from 2006 to 2012, she witnessed this new generation of filmmakers as they came into their own. She is currently the General Delegate of the Cinéma du réel festival and the Artistic Director of the Centre des écritures cinématographiques at Moulin d’Andé, where she supports the works of contemporary filmmakers.

“10 In America” is being developed and produced by Michel Klein, through his company, Les Films Hatari. In 2002, Klein produced an initial anthology, “Portraits,” alongside French/German channel Arte, which was shown at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes in 2004. Since then, he has produced over fifty feature films (fiction and documentary).
