Fathers And Daughters In Film: Gavras and Rossellini. Director Julie Gavras (Blame It On Fidel), daughter of filmmaking legend Costa Gavras is on the line to Arts Express from Paris in a conversation about her new film, Late Bloomers. A satire mulling the marginalization of older people in society, and senior sexuality on screen.

Green Porno: Late Bloomers star Isabella Rossellini, daughter of iconic director Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman, talks about her own venture into filmmaking with this Sundance animal kingdom small screen series. An eco-friendly peep show, and affectionate and raw when not surreal, often tongue in cheek intermittently lusty exploration of creature erotic appetites.
