Nightmares in Deauville

Nightmares in Red, White and Blue has been accepted into this year's Deauville Festival of American Cinema! The festival will take place in September, and the documentary will be featured in the "Les Docs de l'Oncle Sam" category -- alongside Boy Interrupted (a 2008 nominee for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival), Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim's It Might Get Loud (a profile of guitar heroes Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White), Food Inc. (an "unflattering look" at America's corporate-controlled food industry), The Cove (an environmentalist exposé shot off of the coast of Japan), The September Issue (a profile of Vogue magazine's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour) and When You're Strange (a brand new doc about The Doors singer Jim Morrison, featuring never-before-seen footage).

Jean-Pierre Jeunet, director of Delicatessen (1991), Alien: Resurrection (1997) and Amelie (2001), will chair the festival jury this year, and high profile guests will include Harrison Ford, Meryl Streep, Andy Garcia and Robin Wright Penn. Deauville will also pay homage to the late Robert Aldrich, director of The Big Knife (1955), Kiss Me Deadly (1955) and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962).
