Cannes is the town in France where Bergman meets bikinis, and the art of filmmaking meets the art of the deal. In 1975, a group of expat Kiwis managed to score interviews with some of the festival’s emerging talents, indulging their own cinematic dreams in the process. They ended up with Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Werner Herzog, Tobe Hooper, Dustin Hoffman and Paul Bartel being candid, relaxed and amazing.
