Camille Claudel, 1915

Director/Writer: Bruno Dumont
Producer(s): Rachid Bouchareb, Jean Bréhat, Muriel Merlin
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Juliette Binoche and Jean-Luc Vincent

We originally had Bruno Dumont’s 7th feature film on last year’s Most Anticipated list (number 36 spot) when it was called La Créatrice. He has always worked with non-professionals or thesps that don’t have any star wattage – so it’ll be interesting to see how he handles and experienced thesp in Juliette Binoche.

Gist: Winter, 1915. Confined by her family to an asylum in the South of France – where she will never sculpt again – the chronicle of Camille Claudel’s reclusive life, as she waits for a visit from her brother, Paul Claudel.

Release Date: Berlin Film Festival showing then a release in France in the month of March. Expect a distribution deal announcement post festival for the U.S.
