WIM WENDERS – ROOM 666
During the Cannes Film Festival in 1982, Wim Wenders set-up a static camera in a room at the Hotel Martinez. He then invited a selection of directors to answer a series of questions on the future of cinema.
The directors, in order of appearance were:
Mike De Leon
Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Each director was alloted 11 minutes (one 16mm reel of film) to answer the questions.

Luis Buñuel, in 1964
I have some of Jean Pierre Melville’s films and I think the Youtube video above was on the La Samourai DVD, if I’m not mistaken. Wasn’t there a suspicion that it could have been arson as to the cause of why his film studio was set on fire? Wasn’t he discriminated against because he was Jewish? I’m pretty sure he was Jewish. Does anybody know anything about this?
