Rebecca Zlotowski: Many Women Filmmakers Have Emerged in France

by Elsa Keslassy.

Zlotowski made her feature debut with Lea Seydoux-starrer “Belle Epine,” which world-preemed at Critics’ Week. Although the film wasn’t a commercial success, it earned Seydoux a Cesar nomination for best newcomer and won a Louis Delluc award. The film also showcased the singularity of Zlotowski’s filmmaking style and storytelling and established her as one of the most promising directors coming out of Francein recent years.

Zlotowski, who is repped by Gregory Weill at Adequat, followed up with “Grand Central,” a love-triangle drama exploring the lives of nuclear plant workers. The movie, sold by Elle Driver, opened at Cannes’ Un Certain Regard.   Zlotowski graduated from France’s prestigious Femis school and started her career as a screenwriter of several short films and co-penned Teddy Lussi-Modeste’s “Jimmy Riviere.”
