(Not to be confused with the gorgeous 1994 Macedonian film Before the Rain by Milcho Manchevski.)
Here in Manhattan, we’ve seen a lot of the director and his cast in the past week or so.
First, there was a press day and reception at the Indian consulate. Yesterday, Jennifer Ehle
was a guest on Leonard Lopate’s show on WNYC to talk about her role in the film, and in the evening, film critic Jeffrey Lyons hosted a screening of the film with Q&A afterward with Santosh Sivan and producer Paul Hardart.
Reel Talk will soon have an interview up on their site with one of the film’s lead actors and now local boy (while he’s starring in Law and Order), Linus Roche.
Will post my thoughts on the film soon.
Meanwhile, Mr. Sivan has departed NY today to attend the Silk Screen festival in Pittsburgh, where Before the Rains will be featured.
