Quentin TARANTINO

Director
Quentin Tarantino was born in 1963 in Knoxville, Tenessee. He spent his youth in a suburb of Los Angeles and becomes interested in film at an early age. His passion leads him, at the age of 22, to work in a video store where he spends his days with his friend Roger Avary, with whom he wrote Pulp Fiction several years later. It's during this time that he decides to edit his first scripts. Owing to the sale of his scripts True Romance and Natural Born Killers he directs his first film Reservoir Dogs in 1992. The film is widely distributed and becomes one of the best cop thrillers of the 90s. His second film, Pulp Fiction wins the Palme d'Or at the 1995 Festival de Cannes. In 1997 he shoots Jackie Brown, one of the best films of the decade, a tribute film to American cinema of the 70s. With Jackie Brown, Quentin Tarantino crosses over into the realm of great filmmakers. Following an absence of five years, Quentin Tarantino is back on the studio lot in 2002 with Kill Bill. Originally produced as a single film, it is finally released in two parts: Kill Bill Volume1 and Kill Bill Volume 2. He is planning to start work on the third and final opus of his Kill Bill saga.

Nikita MIKHALKOV
Director
Nikita Mikhalkov was born in Moscow in 1945. His family was one of writers and artists. He started acting when he was 14 years old, and played in many films including I Step Through Moscow by G. Daniela (1963) and A Nest of Gentry by his brother A. Mikhalkov-Konchalovski (1969). During that period, he studied cinema at the VGIK in Mikhaïl Romm's directing class. One of his first films as director, Slave of Love (1975) is a tribute to silent movies and An Unfinished Piece for a Player Piano adapted from Chekhov, won first prize at the San Sebastian Festival, thus establishing Mikhalkov's international fame. It was amplified by his following successes: Five Evenings (1978), A Few Days in the Life of I.I. Oblomov (1979) after Goncharov's novel, Kinfolk (1981) and Without Witness (1983). In 1987, he directed Dark Eyes in Italy with Marcello Mastroianni taking the main role, and in 1991 went to Mongolia to shoot Urga (Close to Eden), Golden Lion at the Venice Festival. Anna (1992-1994) was a portrait of his daughter and Burnt by the Sun won Grand Prize at the Festival de Cannes in 1994 and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1995. After various roles in many of his own films, he played the central character of Colonel Kotov in that film and made a brief appearance as Tsar Alexander III, in the Barber of Siberia, shown at the opening night of the Festival de Cannes in 1999.

TIM ROTH
Actor, Director
After drama school in London, Tim Roth worked onstage before making his film debut with The Hit by Stephen Frears (1984). This was followed by a series of art-house films: Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover (1989), Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard (1990), and Robert Altman's Vincent and Theo (1990). Tim Roth then moved to the United States where his roles in Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994) by Quentin Tarantino brought him international renown. But it was his role in the MGM film, Rob Roy (1995) that earned him nominations for the Golden Globes and for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. He has filmed with some of the biggest names in international film, with memorable performances in James Gray’s Little Odessa (1994), Everyone Says I Love You by Woody Allen (1996), Legend of 1900 by Giuseppe Tornatore (1998), Tim Burton's Planet Of The Apes (2001), Youth Without Youth by Francis Ford Coppola (2007), and Michael Haneke’s Funny Games (2007). In 1999, he directed The War Zone, presented successively at Sundance, Cannes and Toronto. Sam Shepard’s The God Of Hell saw Roth return to the stage in New York. Since 2009 he has starred in the hit series Lie To Me. He is soon to appear in Arbitrage alongside Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon.
