Duration: 90’

LuxFilmFest is pleased to present a masterclass with Academy-Award-winning director William Friedkin, exclusively for the Festival from the latter’s L.A. home.

Born in 1935 in Chicago, William Friedkin started to learn filmmaking on television sets at the age of seventeen. In 1971, he rose to international fame and critical acclaim thanks to the film noir The French Connection, for which he received the Academy Award for Best Director. But he may be best known for The Exorcist (1973), one of the most terrifying films of all time, nominated for 10 Oscars. Besides directing such iconic action thrillers as To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) and Rampage (1988), William Friedkin has also been staging operas since 1998. His productions of Wozzeck, La fanciulla del West, or Samson and Delilah have toured some of the world’s most respected opera houses.

The Festival’s first ever online masterclass will be presented by Philippe Rouyer. Film critic and historian, Philippe Rouyer works as a journalist for the French film magazine Positif and the film section of the magazine Psychologies. He is a regular panellist on “Mauvais genres” on France Culture and “Le Cercle” on Canal+ Cinéma.

The Masterclass will be available online.
