    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "August Evening" Director Chris Eska

    Director Chris Eska's "August Evening" revolves around an aging undocumented farm worker named Jaime and his young, widowed daughter-in-law, Lupe, who have their lives thrown into upheaval. Lupe happens to be more of a daughter to Jaime than his own children, and the two try to stick together but change is inevitable. At the heart of the story is the conflict between generations.

    DISPATCH FROM VENICE '08 | Riding the Ups and Downs of National Cinemas

    There was a feeling, immediately after Cannes, that we were in the grip of some unforeseen phenomenon: a sudden and perceptible upturn in the fortunes of Italian cinema. True, Matteo Garrone's "Gomorra" was excellent -- and Paolo Sorrentino's "Il Divo" was, to my mind, even better -- but to herald a fully-fleged renaissance, on the basis of these two films, seemed a little optimistic, not to say premature. One swallow, after all, doth not a summer make. Many within the Italian film industry were quick to wave the flag -- at least in public; privately, though, they would confide that this supposed "new wave" was in fact just a blip: a piece of...
