If I Were Myself

by Roberto Pugliese

From the prison that currently houses him, Jafar Panahi talks to us about an Iran that knows no peace in No Bears, which sees him in a quasi-autobiography interpretation. Our Ties also sees director Roschdy Zem starring as himself, as does talented pianist Tymoteusz Bies in Bread and Salt, the latter directed by Damian Kocur.
Rounding up the Italian army of four is Susanna Nicchiarelli’s third portrait of historical female figures: Chiara, about the life of Clare of Assisi. Out of competition is Oliver Stone’s latest work, Nuclear. The Venice Days programme end with Steve Buscemi’s The Listener. The least exhausted of you after our amazing yearly film marathon may be interested in the six episodes of Copenhagen Cowboy, by Nicolas Winding Refn. The final screening of the 79th Venice Film Festival will be a dark thriller/film noir by Francesco Carrozzini: The Hanging Sun, starring Alessandro Borghi, Peter Mullan, and beautiful Norwegian summer.
