Dauman feted

Arquette, Dubrowskaya suggests tribute becomes fest prize

CANNES — Patricia Arquette, star of Michel Gondry’s “Human Nature” and the film’s producers, Good Machine’s Ted Hope and Anthony Bregman, mingled with the cream of the French film industry at a tribute to Anatole Dauman Thursday.

Florence Dauman, his daughter, read written tributes to the legendary French producer, including one from Wim Wenders, whose “Paris, Texas” counts among of a string of classic films produced by Dauman:

“When Anatole was still alive, there was nobody like him any more. When Anatole died, a whole species of producers became extinct.”

Among those in attendance were the fest’s management trio, prexy Gilles Jacob, artistic director Thierry Fremaux and managing director Veronique Cayla. Guests included Volker Shlondorff, Pierre Rissient, Daniel Toscan du Plantier, and new CNC chief David Kessler. Arquette and Natasha Dubrowskaya, representing Cinefondation sponsors the Notorious Group, suggested the Dauman tribute to evolve into an annual fest prize for “audacity” in filmmaking.
