One of the things I love about living in Los Angeles is the fact, that there are random q and a’s, events etc.. One such event was for a small film called Siesta directed by Mary Lambert.
Mary directed films like Pet Sematary as well as iconic music videos for Eurythmics, Madonna, Janet Jackson and more.
It was a fun event. At the q and a was Ellen Barkin and Jodie Foster. I mean, hello, we had to go!
Ellen Barkin arrived before the film and was nice enough to sign a couple posters for me. Drop Dead Gorgeous and Switch.
She was very nice.
The film itself, was a unique non linear film.
The q and a featured Mary, the two stars and the editor.
I thought the q and a was very interesting and it was a unique look at the different way a filmmaker approaches a film like this.
After the q and a, Jodie Foster was really nice. She came over and signed for everyone.
I got my Flightplan poster signed as well as Little Man Tate.
It was a super fun evening and I’m so glad I found it!
Until next time kids…
