The official website of 2014 Cannes Film Festival released a new interview with Ryan in which he talks about “Lost River“, his next project and his influences. The movie will premiere later today at Cannes so be sure to come back for our coverage and (hopefully) the first reviews!
Ryan Gosling is back in Cannes, this time as a director. The actor has been at the Festival twice before, to represent the films Blue Valentine by Derek Cianfrance en 2008, and the atypical Drive by the Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, which won the Best Director Award in 2011. This year, Ryan Gosling is competing for the prize in Un Certain Regard with a fantasy film about a family that is projected into a macabre reality. As a first-time director, he talks about what inspired him and the atmosphere on the set of Lost River.
Tell us how your film came about.
Since I had never made a film before I wanted to start with something simple. Try telling a simple story, like a fairy tale. I had the opportunity to work in Detroit for a few days on another movie. It’s a wildly special place with an incredible history and a mysterious future. There are many miles of abandoned neighborhoods and within them are families and kids growing up on streets where houses are being burned and torn down around them. It’s surreal and has a dark fairy tale quality to it already and not just in the destruction but in so many ways. So I decided to make a film there that followed a similar arc from dream to nightmare about a family living in a reality that bordered on fantasy.
