Twenty Features Set for Cannes 2004 Director's Fortnight (by Eugene Hernandez, April 28, 2004)
The lineup for the Quinzaine des Realisateurs, also known as the Director's Fortnight, was unveiled in France today by new artistic director Olivier Pere. The sidebar will run May 13-23 in Cannes. Among the list of 20 feature films are four from the United States and an array of pictures from around the world.
Katsuhito Ishii's The Taste of Tea will open the section and Andres Wood's Machuca will close the sidebar.
The U.S. contingent includes Asia Argento's The Heart is Deceitful… Above All Things, adapted from JT Leroy's novel and starring Winona Ryder, Peter Fonda, and the filmmaker. The three other entries screened at Sundance earlier this year, including Jonathan Caouette's Tarnation, which was recently acquired by Wellspring, Jacob Aaron Estes' Mean Creek which was nabbed post-Sundance by Paramount Classics, and Nicole Kassell's The Woodsman, which Newmarket acquired.
