What’s It All About?

The La Biennale di Venezia has organised the 73rd Venice International Film Festival to raise awareness and promote various aspects of international cinema. The festival promotes all forms of art entertainment and also organises retrospectives and tributes to major figures. The Venice Film Festival has remained a prestigious event globally due to the quality of its selection and the recent refurbishing of its historic buildings and technological supplies. The festival lasts 11 days, starting from August 31 to September 10 in Venice Lido, and will be directed by Alberto Barbera.

Watch Out For

Opening Film

La La Land

Damien Chazelle‘s La La Land is a modern take on the classic Hollywood romance, as two dreamers struggle to make ends meet while they pursue their passions in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts. Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, scrapes by by playing cocktail piano gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Indian Connect

Events In A Cloud Chamber

Director Ashim Ahluwalia’s short film Events In A Cloud Chamber has been selected for the Venice Classic section. Legendary artist Akbar Padamsee along with SH Raza, Francis Newton Souza and MF Hussain had made a visionary 16mm film called Events In A Cloud Chamber, an Indian experimental film made back in 1969. However, no print or copies of the film are available today. The director has remade this documentary to show not only continuity with a lost strand of experimental filmmaking but also his affinity to Padamsee’s experiments.
