It will be a long wait until we can enjoy the premieres of Jackie and Planetarium in Venice … but we will try to make it more bearable with a good portion of tidbits.
-Speaking of Jackie, the last film of Pablo Larraín, here we have an interview (in Spanish) with his brother (and co-producer of the film) where, among other things, he talks about the difficulties of production:
On October 8, Juan de Dios landed at Charles De Gaulle airport with his family, cameras and bags. A month later, and two weeks into the filming, there was multiple bombing in Paris that killed 137 people. That night of November 13, the feeling of insecurity was overwhelming. Hard to describe, with shouts and incessant sounds of sirens. That forced them to redouble security in film sets and reroute cars. In February they moved to Washington to shooting in locations. The same day of the filming outside the White House, Barack Obama’s team confirmed that they would have an hour to make shots. Including installation of vintage cars, sets, costumes. The result was perfect.
–A Tale of Love and Darkness will have a limited US release on August 19, so Natalie attend a few events next week. The first two will take place in New York on Thursday: one in the morning on AOL Build Studio, and the other in the afternoon on Lexington Avenue. The last one will take place on Saturday in LA (thanks to Kitten for the find):
Hopefully we will have some images of them…
-A few days ago we saw a picture of the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. Well, here we have an enlarged image of the first page of the article:
-Finally, Here we have a small but great reference to Natalie from Shirin Neshat (Ilusion & Mirrors), in an article about her new exhibition:
“With Natalie, her professionalism and experience as an actress was tremendous. I almost didn’t have to explain anything, she was so quick to understand what I was looking for,” Neshat recalls. “As it was a great pleasure for me to work with someone as Natalie’s caliber, I think for Natalie, who works on big Hollywood productions, it was a fun experiment to work on an experimental, abstract video piece.”
