‘The Beautiful Days Of Aranjuez’ Trailer And Clips: First Look at Wim Wenders’ Divisive Film

16 September 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wim Wenders’ “The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez” has received mostly negative reviews on this year’s fall festival circuit. IndieWire’s own Ben Croll gave the film a D grade and said that it’s “ploddingly, achingly dull,” and other reviews have described it as “inert and exasperatingly supercilious,” “prettily sunlit but otherwise insufferable,” and “a literal representation of how creatively bankrupt Wim Wenders has become.” An adaptation of Peter Handke’s two-hander play by the same name, the film features a conversation between a man (Reda Kateb) and a woman (Sophie Semin) as they discuss their childhoods, memories, sexual experiences, and more. Watch a trailer and clips from the film below.

Lucy Walker Embraces Vr: Why The Oscar-Nominated Filmmaker is Focused on the Future of Cinema

2 September 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The dinosaurs still making films better embrace virtual reality, according to director Lucy Walker.

Her impressive roster of documentaries have earned her two Oscar nominations: One for her feature, “Waste Land,” and one for a short, “The Tsunami and The Cherry Blossom.” She was recently tapped to direct the followup to Wim Wenders’ “Buena Vista Social Club.” Filming “Buena Vista Social Club: Adios” sparked an interest in Cuban music and dance, which led Walker to make “A History of Cuban Dance,” a lively Vr short chronicling Cuban history through its many dance styles. The feature will also have an accompanying Vr film.

Walker is also currently a creator with Chris Milk’s Vr company, Within (formerly Vrse), a prolific production house making some of the most narratively compelling virtual reality films out there.

“I love using documentary films to take the viewer on a journey to a world they’re not physically in. »

The Broad Green Layoffs: Why Good Movies Aren’t Enough to Avoid The Startup Curse

20 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Wall Street billionaires Gabriel Hammond, 37, and his brother, Daniel, 33, launched independent producer-distributor Broad Green Pictures two summers ago, Hollywood was skeptical about its prospects. In a time when even the Weinsteins are struggling to survive, it was a strange time to reinvent a dying economic model.

Now Broad Green is laying off around 6 percent of its staff, all of whom work in the publicity department, the company confirmed to IndieWire. Broad Green’s publicity head Adam Keen, a former Warner Bros. publicity exec, has resigned. Marketing and communications personnel are traditionally the first casualties of cutbacks in Hollywood.

The layoffs were unsurprising. Ken Kwapis’s Sundance comedy “A Walk in the Woods” starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte managed $30 million, but that couldn’t counterbalance films like Ramin Bahrani’s well-reviewed real estate thriller “99 Homes” ($1.7 million domestic) and Sarah Silverman’s depressive drama “I Smile Back” ($58K). Now, the »

Cuba’s 5ta Avenida: Of Aliens, Vampires and Zombies

7 March 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guadalajara — Cuban producer Claudia Calvino of La 5ta Avenida Prods. is taking scribe Arturo Infante’s feature debut, sci fi comedy “The Extraordinary Journey of Celeste Garcia” to Guadalajara’s Co-Prod Meet.

“The Journey…” centers on a lonely 60-year-old Planetarium tour guide who seizes the chance for a new life when an alien race invites earthlings to visit their planet. The only caveat is that it’s a one-way ticket. For Infante, who studied screenwriting at the European Audiovisual Writing Conservatory in Paris, Celeste’s character reps his parents’ generation who “gave their best years to build a utopian project” and are now “marked by disenchantment and skepticism.”

Infante penned “La Edad de la Peseta” by Pavel Giroud; and co-wrote “Habana Eva” by Fina Torres. His shorts “Utopia” and “Gozar Comer Partir” snagged a host of local and international prizes.

“Mexico seems a good fit for a co-production partner as “The Journey… »

This year’s best documentary feature nominees continues a long trend of music docs being recognized by the Academy, as two music-related films have earned nominations at this year’s Oscars.

Amy, which tells the story of late songstress Amy Winehouse in her own words through never-before-seen archival footage and unreleased tracks and is nominated for best doc this year, earned nominations for the Queer Palm and Golden Eye awards at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival for director Asif Kapadia.

Filmmaker Liz Garbus earned the second nomination of her career with the Netflix documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone? The film focuses on the life of iconic R&B singer Nina Simone and her life as a singer, mother, and civil rights activist. Garbus earned her first Oscar nomination in 1998 for her documentary The Farm: Angola, USA.

Music-related docs have been a hot topic for the Academy in years past, »
