Q&A with director following screening
A single woman struggles to rebuild her life in Brooklyn after spending 10 years abroad as the unrecognized muse to a famous filmmaker. Wallabout is an intimate first-person account of an overeducated and underemployed outsider who navigates an often hypocritical and corrupt society.
Half French/half American, Eric has directed shorts and has worked as a first assistant director with filmmakers including Luc Besson, Cedric Klapisch, Oscar-nominee Rachid Bouchareb, and Sundance prizewinner Jonathan Nossiter. Previously, Eric worked in theatre and dance in Paris as an actor and stage manager. He attended the Sorbonne and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.
