Portman’s director debut and Human Award
Natalie Portman made her debut as a director in Eve as she opened the short films section of the Venice Film Festival earlier in the day.
Eve is a short film which concerns “a young woman named Kate, who visits her grandma Lola for dinner, and is surprised to find her grandma is on a date with a man named Joe.”
Film fans queued round the block to see Eve, which includes Lauren Bacall and Ben Gazzara in the cast.
And there are more good news for Natalie as she picked up a Humanity Award in Venice on Sunday. The Star Wars beauty received the first-ever Movie for Humanity Award for her work with social and environmental programs.
The Oscar-nominee donated her $50,000 prize to the Jane Goodall Institute in Tanzania, where Portman supports the Tacare Girl’s Scholarship Program.
The 27 year old Israeli born said:
The Jane Goodall foundation does incredible work in Tanzania, an area which is very environmentally affected. I really appreciate this award.”
