An official international trailer from France has debuted for the latest Roman Polanski drama titled D’après Une Histoire Vraie, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The film is about a famous writer named Delphine, played by Emmanuelle Seigner, going through a tough time who hires a ghost writer to help her with her work. However, it turns out "L", played by Eva Green, is more of an obsessive admirer who actually has an ulterior motive. Vincent plays Delphine's boyfriend, Francois. Click here for the first international trailer from YouTube. It will open in France on November 1.

Earlier this month, Swiss newspaper Le Temps interviewed Vincent about a new project - the creation in March of the Rencontres du 7e Art Lausanne, an event dedicated to heritage films, modeled on the Festival Lumière de Lyon. When asked what reasons he had for this idea, he responded:

"There are many. First of all, the fact that I still have family in Switzerland, and that every time I come back here, my heart beats. This region is for me inhabited by wonderful memories. Then, the fact that Lausanne, where I was born, is the headquarters of the Swiss Cinematheque, created by this mythical character, this important figure in the history of cinema that is Freddy Buache. And imagine that I am a native of Penthaz and that I spent a good part of my childhood playing football twenty meters from the building that now houses the archives of the Cinematheque. Two of its officials live in our old family house! When I learned this, it stirred something within me. I then thought of this formidable jewel, the city of Lausanne, a city of culture which, with the forthcoming opening of Platform 10, which will bring together three museums, including that of the Elysee, will become a real pole; and I felt this need to create a major event around the cinema. I remember that when I was a kid and I went down the Petit-Chêne, I stopped in front of the window of Georges V to see the photos of the projected films. I began to dream, and when I had no one to speak of it, I lived great moments of solitude."

In this same interview, Vincent discussed his upcoming photography book called "Un Voyage en Russie", published by Delpire Editions, which will be released on October 5. He exclaimed, "It's wonderful. I cannot wait to have it in my hands, and at the same time I'm afraid because it's a clear act. A first book. It is a landmark in the courage of a photographer. It is important. There are about 120 pictures, and there I cannot really hide behind some good shots. I reveal myself. But I think that there are many emotions in these images. It seems to me that I could touch a little of the soul of what I would call the vastness of Russia."

Vincent's photography exhibition of the same name will open at the Gallery Folia in a couple days. What an exciting time for him! On display will be photographs taken by Vincent over the course of four trips through Russia alongside the writer Olivier Rolin. Some of his photos can be seen in this gallery.
