Today Tribeca announced the first 34 feature films of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival slate. The rest of the features slate will be announced on Monday, March 15, with the list of short films to follow later in the week. The complete list of features will be posted online on Monday in the 2010 Film Guide.
The seven films in the Showcase sections are each from a different country, and feature a diverse mix of established and first-time directors. Compelling personal stories abound in this snapshot of global cinema already making waves on the international film scene: a man seeks revenge after his brother’s murder, a fresh French romantic comedy explores the consequences of unexpected love, and two grandmothers coping with the loss of their grandsons develop a mutual bond. Other films take us to Port-au-Prince, an underground community in 2024 Europe, and 1970s South Korea.
Two of these films, Road, Movie and Metropia, will also premiere on Tribeca Film (video-on-demand) on April 21.
(Note: I was told Metropia will be out on Blue Ray April 17th, 2010.)
Directed by Tarik Saleh, written by Fredrik Edin, Stig Larsson, and Tarik Saleh
(Sweden, Denmark, Norway) – New York Premiere
In the year 2024, all of Europe is united by a vast web of underground railways, populated by an army of downtrodden worker bees. When one such cog starts hearing voices and encounters a femme fatale shampoo model who seems to hold some answers, he finds himself unearthing a vast Orwellian conspiracy in this visually arresting animated noir. With the voices of Vincent Gallo, Juliette Lewis, Udo Kier, Stellan Skarsgård, and Alexander Skarsgård. A Tribeca Film release.
