Screen can reveal the first trailer for Claire Simon’s I Want To Talk About Duras, which has been selected in competition at this year’s San Sebastian film festival (September 17-25).
The film explores the relationship between French writer Marguerite Duras and her last partner Yann Andréa, who was 38 years her junior.
César-winning actors Emmanuelle Devos and Swann Arlaud co-star as Manceaux and Andréa in the film, which is based on an unedited transcript of a 1982 interview between Andréa and writer and journalist Michèle Manceaux.
It is Simon’s fifth fiction feature after her 2013 comedy-drama Gare du Nord and some 20 documentaries that include recent title Young Solitude.
The film is produced by François d’ Artemare at Paris-based Les Films de l’Après Midi. Luxbox are handling sales.
