On his wish list for the 69th Festival de Cannes Berthier says he hopes to shoot Director / actress Jodie Foster, Actor George Clooney and Actress Julia Roberts. Of course Berthier will have a chance during the press conference of their film “Money Monster” but what Berthier is really hoping for is an exclusive. Breather is also a Getty Images photographer.
