Sydney Festival Teases First Titles

25 pictures revealed in festival preview

HONG KONG – “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” the Chinese thriller that won at Berlin, is among the 25 titles unveiled in a preview of the upcoming Sydney Film Festival (June 4-15, 2014).

Other pictures include John Lithgow and Alfred Molina-starring gay drama “Love Is Strange,” Ritesh Batra’s “The Lunchbox,” Xavier Dolan’s “Tom At The Farm,” Lukas Moodysson’s “We Are The Best,” Michel Gondry’s “Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?,” Hany Abu-Asad’s “Omar” and David Gordon Green’s Nicolas Cage drama “Joe.”

Another highlight is the Mo Brothers “Killers” in which a copycat killer confronts his subject.

The festival will give space to Australian documentaries: “Redfern Now,” Darlene’ Johnson’s documentary about the birth of Australia’s first all Indigenous theater company, will get its world premiere in Sydney. The fest will also play the Australian-made documentary “Ukraine Is Not A Brothel” about the feminist movement in now war-torn Ukraine.

The late Robert Altman is the subject of a major focus, ‘Altman on Altman,’ selected and presented by his son Michael, and there will be a screening of the restored version of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” It will play on Friday 13th.

The full festival line-up will be announced on Wed May 7.
