Bill Krohn speaking about Bunuel's lifelong Jovian thuderbolts... hurled at the fascists...
Gaston Modot looks on (thanks to Modigliani, Bunuel, Renoir, Becker, Gance...)
PEDRO COSTA: It's not a creation its a meeting. I make films because I meet certain people in certain places. (...) And I think that's important to show certain things like that, it's innocent enough...
We don't want to stop, we have things to do, things to work on. I think cinema's tools require us to make efforts; not everything is lost.
Nevertheless I think that I would do everything for cinema to be like it was in the past. It was an art which educated me, which trained me morally, politically, artistically, aesthetically. I learn so much from films and the way I put into practice my production.
When I say production I mean how to treat people. (...)
QUESTION: Do you expect the cinema viewer to make an effort watching your film?
PEDRO COSTA: Yes. But it's sort of an awareness. I'm not asking the cinema goer to suffer, I just want them to be sensitive and that's what worries me about being here (in Cannes). Perhaps people are not really paying suffient attention. And there should be some nervous tension.
