CM: Tell us about your latest film, Sils Maria?
It has been an amazing journey. Sils Maria made it to Cannes and the French release did very well. It was shown at the Toronto and New York Film Festivals. The next important step is the US release which may happen around March 2015. The film is a kind of mise en abyme. It talks about the passing of time, about art, and offers a dynamic approach to deep questions revealed by the characters portrayed by actress Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Moretz. Juliette first talked about her desire to do this film with Olivier Assayas who had written it. I introduced Kristen to Olivier, and I had the chance to work with Scorsese who spoke highly of Chloe Moretz who he had directed in Hugo, and the casting was done!
