GIRL WITH BLACK BALLOONS + Director Q&A

London Premiere
Dir: Corinne van der Borch
United States / 2010 / 58mins

The Chelsea Hotel is a New York City icon – ever wondered who lives in it? Girl with Black Balloons is no ordinary character study but a multi-faceted portrait of Bettina – a reclusive, artist living within the confines of Manhattan's legendary lodgings.

THE POLITICIAN, THE POET, THE COOK AND THE LORD
Short film about the filmmaker's obsession with the odd looking little green huts, which stand alone on busy London streets. Curious to find out what went on inside them, Corinne found herself emerged into the London cabbie culture. As a result her first documentary closely shows the life inside a cabbie shelter.

"Girl With Black Balloons' is a beautifully conceived excavation, part archaeological, part psychological, into the life and times of a truly authentic New York City character" - Alan Berliner
