Scarlett Johansson’s directorial debut!
After being cut last month from the ensemble film NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU, Scarlett Johansson’s directorial debut. THESE VAGABOND SHOES, starring Kevin Bacon and shot in black and white by acclaimed cinematographer Adam Kimmel (CAPOTE), will open the L.A. Shorts Festival ’09. Originally conceived as part of the ensemble film which features 12 shorts from international filmmakers including Mira Nair, Faith Akin, Brett Ratner and Natalie Portman, supposedly Johansson’s film was cut because it did not fit in with the other films.
The annual short film festival, which runs this year from July 23 – 31, will premiere two other films on opening night, followed by a Q& A with the filmmakers: THE SPLEENECTOMY by first-time director Kirsten Smith, who wrote HOUSE BUNNY and LEGALLY BLONDE; APOCRAPHA from Russian-born Andrei Zvyagintsev, winner of the Venice Film Festival’s 2003 Golden Lion for THE RETURN. As the festival is officially recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences, films shown here are eligible for Oscar consideration.
