Q&A: Director of "Cleveland Versus Wall Street," Jean-Stephane Bron


As we reported in this week’s paper, Forest City returns to the big screen this week with the local opening of “Cleveland Versus Wall Street,” a kinda-documentary that serves as a dry run for the city of Cleveland’s lawsuit holding 21 big banks accountable for the foreclosure disaster.

The film, which started out as a straight documentary, morphed into a hybrid piece when Swiss director Jean-Stephane Bron realized he wouldn’t be able to make a movie work with the time frame. Below is a Q&A with Bron about how he jumped the usual genre hurtles to create a one of a kind film.
