Bollain’s ‘Olive Tree,’ Almodovar’s ‘Julieta,’ Ortiz’s ‘Bride’ On Spain’s Oscar Short-List

20 August 2016 3:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Iciar Bollain’s “The Olive Tree,” Pedro Almodovar’s “Julieta” and Paula Ortiz’s “The Bride” have made Spain’s short-list for its Oscar submission. The country’s final Academy Award candidate will be announced on Sept. 7.

The short-list pits three titles by auteurs from three Spanish filmmaking generations, each offering, in different measure, an offshore appeal beyond their arthouse-to-crossover Spanish market base.

“The Olive Tree” (pictured) marks the seventh film by actress-turned-director Iciar Bollain, whose feature helming debut, comedy “Hi, Are You Alone?,” dates from 1996.

Produced by Madrid-based Morena Films and Germany’s Match Factory Productions, and sold internationally by eOne’s Seville Intl., “The Olive Tree” is written by Ken Loach’s regular scribe Paul Laverty, who was inspired by a newspaper article he read.

Indirectly addressing the social, economic and emotional effects of Spain’s still-recent boom-to-bust crisis, the film follows a family in a village in Eastern Spain, »

‘Finding Altamira’ Trailer: Antonio Banderas Struggles Between Faith & Science In True Story

3 August 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The tension between science and religion rages on far into the 21st century, but the two have been in conflict with each other since the beginning. The new film “Finding Altamira,” directed by Hugh Hudson (“Chariots of Fire”), places that conflict at its center. Antonio Banderas stars as Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola y de la Pedrueca, an archaeologist who in 1878 accidentally discovers a cave filled with ancient paintings. When it turns out that the art is over 10,000 years old, it inspires wrath and condemnation from religious and scientific communities who refuse to accept their conception of human history has been flawed. Now, Marcelino must choose to do what’s right, even though it might put his family and reputation in jeopardy. The film also stars Golshifteh Farahani (“About Elly”), Rupert Everett (“Shakespeare In Love”), Pierre Niney (“Yves Saint Laurent”), and more. Watch a trailer for the film below.

Ava DuVernay Original Prison Documentary Set To Open The 54th New York Film Festival

19 July 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announces Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th as the Opening Night selection of the 54th New York Film Festival (September 30 – October 16), making its world premiere at Alice Tully Hall. The 13th is the first-ever nonfiction work to open the festival, and will debut on Netflix and open in a limited theatrical run on October 7.

Chronicling the history of racial inequality in the United States, The 13th examines how our country has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African-American. The title of DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States . . . ” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass incarceration and »

Chus Lampreave (1930-2016)

4 April 2016 6:24 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Almodóvar aficionados, like you and I, have been dreading this day. But every great movie face eventually only still flickers on screens and in our memories. The great Chus Lampreave, so memorable in so many Pedro Almodóvar movies, has died at 85 years of age. She had been home bound recently in Almería.

Her film career began when Pedro was just a pre-teen. She was given her first acting job by the director Jaime de Armiñán. Like many directors after him, he worked with her repeatedly, including in the Oscar nominated film My Dearest Senorita (1972). She came to international fame via her relationship with Pedro Almodóvar though. She joined his troupe early on as one of his subversive nuns in Dark Habits (1983). She was always easy to spot with those coke bottle glasses, that tiny frame and inimitable voice. Dark Habits was the first of eight collaborations with Pedro over the »
