Miranda July’s THE FUTURE heading to Berlinale, joins films from Wim Wenders and Ralph Fiennes
With both Sundance and Cannes getting their schedules ready for 2011 (the latter in a much smaller way than the former’s massive full slate announcement), it’s Germany’s turn.
According to Screen Daily (via The Playlist), the 2011 Berlinale, which is set to open with the out-of-competition addition TRUE GRIT, will feature a few hotly talked about projects. Including Ralph Fiennes directorial debut CORIOLANUS, the festival will include the 3D dance film, PINA, from director Wim Wenders, as well as Miranda July’s Sundance premiere, THE FUTURE.
Joining them as well will be the Seyfi Teoman film, OUR GRAND DESPAIR, IF NOT US, WHO?, YELLING TO THE SKY, and LIPSTIKKA from director Jonathan Sagall.
YELLING TO THE SKY seems to be a quite promising film in particular, which stars Gabourey Sidibe, Tim Blake Nelson, and Jason Clarke, and while films like THE FUTURE and PINA may prove to be more interesting projects as a whole, this one boasts one hell of a compelling set of actors.
It's PINA and THE FUTURE that excite this writer the most, particularly the former, which could prove to be just another stunning visual masterpiece from one of today’s most interesting visual filmmakers.
