Marco Mueller on Rome challenges

16 October 2014 4:53 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival veteran discusses this year’s “pop mix” and a “very challenging” year.

Rome Film Festival (Oct 16-25) artistic director Marco Mueller hails this year’s line-up as a “pop mix”, which combines eclectic genres and nationalities, despite significant festival budget cuts.

“We have a very interesting pop mix,” says the respected veteran, who will depart the festival after this, his third year in charge.

“We move between an unusual Italian comedy [Alessandro Genovesi’s opener Soap Opera], amazing genre films, a large presentation of Latin American cinema – in a strong year for the region, Asian films and some of the key English-language films of the coming awards season.”

Line-up

This year’s line-up comprises 24 world premieres, including Aleksey Fedorchenko’s drama Angels Of Revolution, Christoph Hochhausler’s German thriller The Lies of the Victors and Afghan/German director Burhan Kurbani’s We Are Young. We Are Strong.

English-language titles in the line-up include the European premiere of Stephen Daldry’s Trash, [link »

The competition sees world bows of Russian auteur Aleksey Fedorchenko’s “Angels Of Revolution,” which had been announced; and also Italo helmer Claudio Noce’s Alps-set thriller “The Ice Forest,” (pictured) marking Emir Kusturica’s first lead thesping role; German helmer Christoph Hochhausler “The Lies of the Victors,” a thriller about the dark underbelly of contempo politics in »
