ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
Seberg’s Story is the second feature film by Australian theater director Benedict Andrews.
According to the director, the biography of the actress is now more relevant than ever: “In this film, we are faced with an example of state oversight for political purposes. Fifty years later, Gene’s story directly reflects our current reality: the overwhelming racism of American politics, the problem of separating truth from falsehood in an era of so-called fake news, and total intelligence surveillance. I wasn’t at all interested in making a regular biographical film about her life, and I didn’t want to miss the 1960s. I wanted to get to know Seberg better and find out what happened to her in those years.”
