One of the challenges of throwing an international film festival is getting your international guests into town in time for their appearances. Tuesday night at SILVERDOCS we were expecting Jerome Aglibert, a producer of WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MUSIC ANYWAY, to be around to introduce the film. By showtime at 7:45, he wasn’t in the building, and we hadn’t heard from him. It turns out that he was still making his way to the theater after a flight from Paris. Not long after the film began rolling, he arrived in Silver Spring to pick up his festival pass and get a bite to eat, and then he made his way to the Discovery HD theater. After the film was over, he capably handled a 20-minute Q&A session as if he hadn’t spent the last few hours on a trans-Atlantic flight. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MUSIC ANYWAY — directed by Aglibert’s friends Cédric Dupire & Gaspard Kuentz — screens again Friday, June 25 at 11 p.m. Get more information here.
