Telluride Unveils 'Battle' Movie Lineup

Tribute to Cate Blanchett, Sam Mendes romance set in cinema and plenty of documentaries in 1934 on the agenda Telluride Film Festival , which opens Friday in the Rocky Mountains and runs through Monday.

Colorado Intimacy Film Festival director Julie Huntsinger said that as a non-issue of the awards season For the official U.S. kickoff, the Telluride may have been most notable this year for the controversy over its film’s start.

“There are more divisive films,” said Hensinger, who wrote Telluride with Tom Rudy. “There’s more anxiety. There’s only turmoil and turmoil in the world, and that’s reflected in the movies. People are arguing more about movies this year than ever before.”

In Tellew Films Ryder screened that could spark a heated debate in theater halls include Sarah Polley’s “Women Talk” , by Rooney Mara, Claire Mennonite #MeToo stories starring Foy and Francis McDormand; Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Bardo (or False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths) , a Mexican tragicomedy, nearly three hours long; and Matthew Heineman’s documentary Retrograde 2021, about the last months of America 72 – A year of war in Afghanistan.

Huntsinger and Luddy compiled a roster that includes the first public screening of Mendes’ Empire of Light , Starring Olivia Colman and Micheal Ward, and Sebastián Lelio’s The Wonder , Florence Pugh stars as a British nurse investigating hungry girls.

Tributes are also planned for Polly, who will bring her fourth film as director; Blanchett takes on Todd Field’s play Tár(​​ came to the festival, where she played the conductor of a German orchestra; and the prolific Irish documentary filmmaker Mark Cousins, who was showing two new films, March on Rome , the story of Mussolini’s rise to power, and My Name is Alfred Hitchcock , about British directors.

Some films that premiered at European film festivals will have their North American premiere, including Luca Guadagnino’s adult film Bones and All, starring Timothée Chalamet, will premiere in Venice; is the manager of the Korean drama directed by Hirokazu Koreeda , Song Kang-ho won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival in May; and James Gray’s period drama Doomsday , starring Anne Hathaway and Jeremy Strong, also screened at Cannes.

This year’s Telluride looks very different from the 2021 festival , where COVID protocols predominate, festivals require proof of vaccination, negative COVID test within 72 hours, and indoors Wear a mask. Telluride made no such request this year. “I want everyone to wear masks, and I think a lot of people will, but we’re approaching [COVID] like the rest of the world is approaching it, and it’s endemic,” Hunsinger said.

Pandemics still play a role in the festival world, however, big and small. Production companies are more reluctant to release actors to promote their films – producers won’t allow Chalamet and Pugh Europe, who are filming Dune sequels, to fly Go to Telluride to see a movie. The town of Telluride has enjoyed a housing boom during the pandemic, which has made much of its labor overpriced and raised housing costs for many Telluride ticket holders, a trend that worries Huntsinger. “I never wanted this to be an event that people without the Gulf Stream couldn’t attend,” she said. Even supply chain issues have been affected — there won’t be Boylan soda this year, one of the franchise’s mainstays.

Last year’s Telluride slate reflected a post-Covid boom, as producers had been holding off until theatrical release was greeted by a bumper harvest for distributors. The supply of films has dwindled this year, reflecting the halt in production during the pandemic.

But, Hensinger said of Telluride’s roster, “We’ll always be like Bordeaux. Even in a bad year, we’ll have a good year. “

This year’s lineup of documentaries is particularly heavy, including Bryan Fogel’s follow-up to his Oscar Icarus , Icarus: Aftermath , it catches up with whistleblower Russian scientist Grigory Rodchenkov; Steve James sympathetic spy , on Manhattan Project scientists; Ryan White Good night, Oppy , on Mars rover longer than expected; Matt Tyrnauer the end of the world 2021, Bennington College in the 1980 era; and Eva Weber Merkel , about German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Some documents with parentage: Robert Downey Jr. will bring a movie about his filmmaker father called

Sr. , directed by Bad Vegetarian director Chris Smith; Mary McCartney Directed If These Walls Can Sing about Abbey Road Studios, where her father Paul recorded with the Beatles; and Ondi Timoner DirectorLast Flight Home, about her father’s assisted suicide.

Dissident Russian filmmakers Kantemir Balagov and Kira Kovalenko will present a series of films based on Iranian films as guest directors of the festival (1987 where is the friend’s home? ), France (1934 of ) L’Atalante ) and Soviet (1978Get to know the vast wild world).

The festival will also Celebrating one of the year’s most outstanding regulars, Werner Herzog.
