47 SHORT FILMS ABOUT CANNES
You could read all the blogs, all the coverage… or you might just watch the 47 delightful micro-shorts that Red Bucket Films (Go Get Some Rosemary filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie and colleague Alex Kalman) made while attending the Cannes Film Festival this year. By way of introduction, they write, “With these small observations from a place and time where most of the humanity exists on a screen in a dark room, we (Alex, Benny and Josh) thought we’d find comfort in our pocket sized cameras. The little bits of people, moments, absurdity, glamor, humor and mistakes are for our albums, but also for those who want to imagine a real place and also a place that once of year becomes home to one of the biggest events in Europe and in the world, especially when talking about film. They are called Buttons.”
