The 79th Venice Fim Festival Opened With A Netflix Picture White Noise
Sometimes the last day of summer is not the end but the beginning like it was for the 79th Venice Film Festival, which opened yesterday with upcoming eleven days of cinematographic performance and explorations.
23 entries will enter the main Venezia 79 competition. The first one - Noah Baumbach's White Noise - was shown yesterday after the opening ceremony of the festival. The competition also features Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Bardo, Luca Guadagnino's Bones and All, Andrew Dominik's Blonde, Darren Aronofsky's The Whale.

As Venice Film Festival is well-known for pointing out the best directors who continue their glory on the stage of the Oscars, will it ensure the same story like the last year when the Golden Lion winner Jane Campion for her Power of the Dog was also named the best director at the Oscars? If you haven't counted yet, be aware that eight of the ten last best directors at Oscars have gone to the filmmakers who have premiered their movies in Venice. We still have ten days to find out.
