Chaz Ebert's final video report from Cannes 2015 features more exclusive footage from the festival. During a press conference following the award ceremony, Chaz asks a question and receives thoughtful answers from Joel Coen and Xavier Dolan. In the video, she also discusses the upcoming film project about Emmett Till, based on the book Death of Innocence by Emmett's mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, and Dr. Christopher Benson. Chaz and Nate Kohn will serve as executive producers, while Luke Boyce, Brett Hays and Jen Shelby of Shatterglass Films will produce the film (Boyce and Shelby are interviewed in the video below).
