Mentor Marty

Went to the BFI Southbank last night for the Rolex Mentor and Protége Arts Initiative to hear Martin Scorsese in discussion with Argentinean filmmaker Celina Murga, who he has spent the previous twelve months imparting his wisdom to, a period that encompassed the making of Shutter Island and an HBO pilot. Didn't get to meet the great man, unfortunately, but it was a privilege just to listen to him talk about movies and his continued desire to make them. Plus we got to see a clip from the beautifully restored print of The Red Shoes.
