This is all about new film The Murder of Jean Seberg , starring Daphne Guiness and a very Scorpionic project apparently;
Alex Fury: When did the idea of creating this film originate?
Joseph Lally: Daphne and I were at Sands Point, in this old mansion, and we both had an eerie feeling a murder had been committed in one of its rooms. The next day it was reaffirmed that indeed a murder had taken place. We thought: how great to make an art film about the place and what had happened. Then we spoke of our mutual admiration for actress Jean Seberg, and the following weeks I began to dream of her. In these dreams, she confirmed that her death been murder and not a suicide, thus was the seed and conception of The Murder of Jean Seberg. Jean, Daphne, myself and the lead actor Michael Brager are all Scorpios, so we have a tremendous understanding of death and the mystery of after life.
Daphne Guinness: I just channel her. I get dressed, do my hair and make-up and then just sort of do nothing apart from just channel whatever I think. And Joe cuts it and puts it together. I have read quite a number of books about Seberg. In the same way that Vanessa Redgrave was deeply political, Seberg was. She was part of the Black Panthers, black-balled from Hollywood – and she was seventeen years old, from the middle of nowhere when she was made to be Joan Of Arc by Otto Preminger. Totally cut off from her family. Then she did Breathless, and became more and more isolated. There’s such pathos in her story. Have you ever seen Lilith?
