David A. Robertson,
"Killers of the Flower Moon was a series of murders of Osage men and women to bilk them after the discovery of oil on their land. ... I was drawn to the idea to tell this terribly tragic story that was never brought to national attention. ... I wanted to do justice to the Osage so the audience feels the immensity of the tragedy.”
“Marty was obsessed with telling this story with the most honesty that he possibly could.”
During the press conference after the presentation of the movie at Cannes Film Festival in France, Martin Scorsese was asked by the moderator:
"... I saw the image this morning and your emotion at the end of the sceening during the long standing ovation - was like - it was really touching. ... What was the feeling at the end of the screening yesterday?"
"It was the combination of years of work and an extraordinary warmth and I think love that was expressed. ... all of this seemed to come together in this room. It really did and I think it came from the heart."
