Jean-Paul Civeyrac is a special case of French cinema of recent years. On an international level, he is one of the least known directors of his generation, but even in France, he is only recognized by true cinephiles. He doesn’t belong to any kind of cinema’s new waves or group of filmmakers and he follows a lonely path. His work is characterized by the heavy use of symbolism, the dreamlike scenes and the strong references to theater and poetry.

David Mackenzie is one of the most renowned Scottish directors of recent years. At the beginning of his career he directed mainly independent films, and it is only lately that he’s followed a more mainstream path. Even though his priorities have now changed, Mackenzie still prefers to shoot in locations in Scotland. So after a small US break, he returns to his homeland for his latest film Perfect Sense.
