Tribute to PHILIP KAUFMAN & Master Class

Philip Kaufman, American screenwriter and director, will be leading the Master Class for the 65th Festival de Cannes. Following Martin Scorsese, Stephen Frears, Nanni Moretti, Wong Kar Wai and Sydney Pollack, Kaufman will talk to Michel Ciment about his craft as a film-maker, his experience on-set, the challenges and the pleasures of the profession – in short, his passion for cinema.

For this occasion, the Festival de Cannes will present his latest film: Hemingway & Gellhorn, in the Official Selection on the Out of Competition category.

This fresco, produced by HBO Films and starring Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen, tells the passionate and tumultuous story of the legendary writer and his third wife, a famous war correspondent.

Philip Kaufman, who was born in 1936, completed his studies at the University of Chicago, then at Harvard before spending two years in Europe. On his return to the United States, an encounter with Anaïs Nin determined his career path: he wrote and directed his first film, Goldstein, which was awarded the Prix de la Nouvelle Critique at Cannes in 1964. Two years later, Philip Kaufman had a contract with Universal in Hollywood. He developed the original story of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark with George Lucas and wrote the screenplay for The Outlaw Josey Wales, which went on to be directed by Clint Eastwood (1976). Kaufman then directed The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid (1972) but it was with the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), his remake of the Don Siegel original (1958), that he experienced his first major box office success. After another success with The Wanderers (1979), Kaufman moved on to more ambitious projects: The Right Stuff (1983) which earned him eight nominations and four Oscars and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988) with Daniel Day Lewis, Juliette Binoche and Lena Olin, which received an array of international awards.

Philip Kaufman then directed Henry & June (1990), based on the memoirs of Anaïs Nin, Rising Sun (1993), an adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel, and Quills (2000) with Geoffrey Rush starring as the Marquis de Sade. His most recent film, Twisted, was released in 2004.
