ANIMA 2018 – Writing Where it Floods

I’ll be heading to Brussels to ANIMA 2018 to screen WHERE IT FLOODS and talk about the writing process!

The screening of Where it Floods will be followed by a one-hour conversation between Christophe Beaujean and the director Joel Benjamin, to dissect the writing process of this singular and fascinating film incursion into a deep and isolated rural America that probes into the depths of the human soul.

Where it Floods

Feature by Joel Benjamin, USA, 2017, 46’01’

followed by a discussion in English, without simultaneous translation.

Speakers: Joel Benjamin and Christophe Beaujean (moderator).

In collaboration with the ASA, l’Association des Scénaristes de l’Audiovisuel.


Super excited to be able to go!
