BFI Film Festival - Bang Gang
First film if this years' festival and just like the title, it started with a bang. Eva Husson's debut feature film, which, as she mentioned that she started writing in London at Faber & Faber workshop, is about a group of teens living in Biarritz who have parties, known as 'Bang Gang' parties where they endulge in sex, drugs, drink and enjoy their freedom to do so.
The film has been noticed, in the right way, at quite a few festivals and I'm pleased for several reasons. First and most importantly, the film is written AND directed by a woman, it was obvious that I would mention this. Secondly, its always encouraging to see foreign films having wide coverage, thirdly because if the subject and the content.
A great start to the festival and I can't wait for the next screening and to see what Eva Husson does next.
