The 2016 New York Film Festival will open with Ava Duvernay’s documentary “The 13th”

20 July 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Go figure. I was recently wondering when we would start hearing about which big titles were playing in the main slots at the New York Film Festival. Then, yesterday morning we get word that the Opening Night spot at Nyff has been filled. That coveted position was announced to have been taken by Ava DuVernay and a surprise documentary of hers called The 13th. This will be the first documentary to play in this position, in the 54th incarnation of the fest. As the first Nyff opener to be a non fiction title, history has been made. Consider me very intrigued by this one. This has definitely shaken up how I expected Nyff to go, but that’s never a bad thing. DuVernay obviously broke through in a big way a few years back with Selma, and this seems like one that could only make her a higher profile and more diversely talented filmmaker. »

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 »

Ava DuVernay’s ‘The 13th’ Will Open the 2016 New York Film Festival

19 July 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If the languid summer tentpole season has you down, fear not, as the promising fall slate is around the corner and today brings the first news of what we’ll see at the 2016 New York Film Festival. For the first time ever, a non-fiction film will open The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s festival: Ava DuVernay‘s The 13th. Her timely follow-up to Selma chronicles the history of racial inequality in the United States and will arrive on Netflix and in limited theaters shortly after its premiere at Nyff, on October 7.

“It is a true honor for me and my collaborators to premiere The 13th as the opening night selection of the New York Film Festival,” Ava DuVernay says. “This film was made as an answer to my own questions about how and why we have become the most incarcerated nation in the world, how and why we regard »

The Case For ‘The Darjeeling Limited’ as Wes Anderson’s Most Humanistic Film

11 July 2016 11:32 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Wes Anderson has garnered a strong following and undeniably unique back catalogue in the 20 years he has been making films. Since his debut Bottle Rocket, he has been sharpening his vision of storytelling with his particular cinematic language. A new video essay by Nerd Writer discusses how Anderson’s filmography warrants less of a competition between which is best, but rather which strikes a particular audience member the hardest from a subjective standpoint to posit it his “best” work, as opposed to one or another’s objectively superior quality. The video dives into why The Darjeeling Limited, despite being the least-seen of his wide releases upon initial debut, has had the most impact for the author, a touching film about communication (or lack thereof), family, and grief.

Of particular note is the pondering that while not the formal peak of Anderson’s continually sharpening style, Darjeeling may be Anderson’s most humanistic film. »

7-Minute Video Essay Argues ‘The Darjeeling Limited’ Is Wes Anderson’s Best

7 July 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Which Wes Anderson movie is his best? It’s a common argument amongst film geeks. In fact, I just had this argument again yesterday with a friend of mine over dinner. There are no right or wrong answers, necessarily; each of them are unique and singular in their own little ways. It’s more a matter of […]

See How Color Shapes the Psychological Effect of a Film in New Video Essay

27 June 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Because film is a visual medium, color plays an important role in characterization, setting, and psychology that goes just a little bit deeper than “Red Mean Rage!” A color palette is a subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) way to epitomize tone and feeling via mise-en-scène. A new video essay by Lily Mtz-Seara travels through the color wheel over some Vivaldi and uses an array of films to make its case about why color in production design and lighting should not be overlooked.

From Spring Breakers to American Beauty, Skyfall to The Darjeeling Limited, the essay showcases the clever and sometimes overlapping nature of each with regards to color palettes. Red, for instance, is both a sign of violence in The Shining, but it is both violence and passion in Only God Forgives

The essay is well-structured and flows rather seamlessly, moving at a fast clip as it traverses colors. Pay attention to color palettes, »

Monica Bellucci to Guest Star on ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ Season 3

3 June 2016 2:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome — Monica Bellucci is set to  guest star in the third season of Amazon TV series “Mozart in the Jungle.”

The Italian actress with international star power will play Alessandra, an iconic opera singer who will become the next collaborator of Rodrigo, the New York Symphony Orchestra conductor played by Gael Garcia Bernal.

Season three will see Rodrigo and many musicians take their talents on tour to Europe, an Amazon statement said.

“Alessandra is as famous for her passionate performances as she is for her erratic life off the stage,” is how the statement described her character in the show. “After years away from the spotlight, she enlists Rodrigo to conduct her grand return performance.”

Bellucci recently played a Bond girl named Lucia in “Spectre” and will be starring in Showtime’s upcoming “Twin Peaks” reboot TV series, details of which are being kept under wraps.

First Trailer for Mira Nair’s ‘Queen of Katwe’ Starring Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo

10 May 2016 9:04 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After breaking out in 12 Years a Slave, we actually haven’t seen Lupita Nyong’o on screen since. Yes, she did motion-capture work for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book, but for those hoping for a more substantial role from the actress, it will arrive this year. Mississippi Masala and Monsoon Wedding director Mira Nair recently adapted Tim Crothers‘ book, based on his own article for Espn, with Queen of Katwe and the first trailer has landed today.

The Disney drama follows the true story of Phiona Mutesi, who comes from the slums of Kampala, Uganda and became a chess prodigy as a teenager. The first trailer shows off an authentic, feel-good drama and we imagine it’ll be a strong fit for fall festivals before it hits theaters. Also starring newcomer Madina Nalwanga and David Oyelowo, check out the trailer and poster below.

Waris Ahluwalia is headed back to New York.

The apology is a brilliant first step and I want to thank Aeroméxico for that, but it's a first step and that's past-looking … now what we're talking about is the future, »

‘Darjeeling Limited’ Actor Barred From Plane Because of Turban

8 February 2016 12:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Waris Ahluwalia, a Sikh actor known for roles in Wes Anderson films, was turned away from an Aero Mexico plane because of his turban.

Ahluwalia, who is also a designer and has appeared in films like “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Darjeeling Limited,” was held until everyone else had been boarded before he had his bag searched. He was also swabbed and patted down. When the actor was asked to remove his turban he refused.

“That is something that I would not do in public,” he told the N.Y. Daily News. “That’s akin to asking someone to take off their clothes.”

When he refused he was told that he would have to find another plane. Ahluwalia posted a picture of himself with his plane ticket after being turned away.
