Christine Vachon Is Short on Insight, Inspiration in 2011 State of Cinema Address

Christine Vachon

A few years ago, Christine Vachon says, she visited a psychic. Baffled by what the cards spread before her indicated, the spiritualist asked, “Are you a general in the Army? You're moving great groups of people from one place to the other, and I can't figure out what you do.” Vachon is a film producer, and she does move large groups of people, literally and figuratively. She gave the S.F. International Film Festival's State of Cinema address Sunday night. But regardless of whether she's a military leader or filmmaker, we expected a more insightful and inspirational talk.
