    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Persepolis" Co-directors Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud

    When "Persepolis" screened in competition in Cannes this past May, Iran raised a ruckus, protesting to the French government about the film's negative take on Islam. But it will take more than Iran's ire to stop this baby, an adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's acclaimed graphic novels. Not only did France wave off the protests from Teheran, "Persepolis" -- co-directed by Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud -- has continued to reap honors, including the Cannes Jury Prize, Oscar contender for Best Foreign Picture (France), winner for Best Animated Feature from the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, a Golden Globe ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Nanking" Producer Ted Leonsis

    Producer Ted Leonsis' "Nanking" (directed by Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman) tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking, which was then China's capital, to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen, including a Nazi named Jo...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Billy the Kid" Director Jennifer Venditti

    Director Jennifer Venditti's "Billy the Kid" is a humorous verite portrait of Billy, a 15 year-old outsider growing up in small-town Maine. In many ways, he's a typical teenager who is into heavy metal music and dreams of being a rock star. But he's also unique. A troubled past and ongoing behavioral issues have left him marked. But he's unapologetic about his personality and refuses to be victimized. Billy is funny, sharp, strangely wise for hs age and remarkably candid. Audiences view life from his perspective -- from intimate conversations with his mother, to being bullied at school to his fantasies of becoming a superhero. The audience al...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" Director Julian Schnabel

This might sound odd about the acclaimed artist and scenester noted for the raw energy of his work, a man with an ego to match his outsize canvases, who has segued with seeming ease from painting to filmmaking. Yet ask Schnabel about "The Diving Bell and the Butter...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Protagonist" Director Jessica Yu

    Jessica Yu's latest documentary, "Protagonist," takes on the ambitious topic of applying the dramatic structure of classical Greek playwright Euripedes to contemporary life. Centering on four rather damaged individuals, Yu uncovers the conditions and decisions that brought them to their present state. They include a German terrorist, an "ex-gay" evangelist, a bank robber, and a martial arts student. Certainly a departure from her other current project, the narrative comedy "Ping Pong Playa" (which debuted in Toronto this September), Yu continues to expand her extensive resume, which includes the Academy Award winning short doc, "Breathing Les...
