Venice 2012: Lullaby To My Father

I hate lullabies, but this one looks just fine. Simply because it comes from well-known Israeli director Amos Gitai, and (guess that’s not hard to guess from the title) represents filmmaker’s homage to his father Munio Weinraub.

When I said that this lullaby looks just fine, I actually wanted to say that we also have some great images from Lullaby to My Father which will screen out of the competition at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Make sure you check them out…

So, Lullaby To My Father will actually tell us a story of Munio Weinraub, who was a student at the Bauhaus design and architecture school in the city of Dessau, before Hitler closed the school in 1933. In May 1933, Weinraub was accused of “treason against the German people” and sent to prison and later on expulsed away from Germany. The film follows Munio’s route from Poland to Germany,

'Spring Breakers,' 'Passion,' And 'To The Wonder' Lead Venice

'Spring Breakers,' 'Passion,' And 'To The Wonder' Lead Venice
With the line-up for the Toronto International Film Festival dropping a few days ago and the list for Venice out today, the festival circuit has arrived!

The lead stories for the Venice line-up aren't nearly as exciting as those coming out of Toronto. Harmony Korrine's "Spring Breakers" with James Franco and Selena Gomez will make its debut, as will Brian De Palma's "Passion" with Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams.

Perhaps the biggest headline here is the absence of Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," a film that was expected to appear here. Skipping Venice is just more proof that the rumors of a Fantastic Fest debut may be true.

Check out the full line-up (via The Playlist) after the jump!

Opening Film (Out Of Competition)

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist," Mira Nair (U.S.,Qatar)


"To The Wonder," Terrence Malick (U.S.)

"Something in the Air," Olivier Assayas (France)

Venice Line-Up Includes New Films From Brian De Palma, Olivier Assayas, Harmony Korine, Terrence Malick & More

Following the Toronto International Film Festival line-up earlier this week, the 69th Venice Film Festival has weighed in with their choices this morning. Outside of films also premiering at Tiff — including most notably Ramin Bahrani‘s At Any Price and Terrence Malick‘s To the Wonder – they have a strong batch of films not at that fest. We have the highly anticipated next feature from Olivier Assayas (Summer Hours, Carlos), titled Something In The Air, as well as Brian De Palma‘s sensual thriller Passion with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace.

Then things get a little silly with Harmony Korine‘s James Franco and Selena Gomez gangster/party film Spring Breakers. Rounding out the other major titles are Susanne Bier following up her Oscar win with Love Is All You Need and Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson documentary Bad 25. The lack of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s heavily rumored The Master
