Zahra Amir Ebrahimi is recognized as the best actress at the 75th Cannes Film Festival

DiGiacomo, the company’s Head of Content, is flying back to the U.S. today and took time during her layover in London to tell us about how the company grabbed the Cannes buzz title. “Holy Spider was near the top of my list coming into the festival,” the New York native told us. “I loved Border and I loved that this film sounded dark. I thought there would be more to it than your average genre film or true crime procedural. When I was watching it at the first market screening last week I kept thinking about Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver in terms of the male character. Then you have this female protagonist who you’re really rooting for, who comes up against so much. It really deserves multiple viewings because of the multiple twists. As soon as we saw it, we were riveted. No one walked out of the buyers’ screening, which is very unusual, even at the graphic moments.”
