Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #78. Sally Potter’s Alba


Alba was being mounted back in September of 2019 and yet with no other developments we thought this was still in development so you can imagine our surprise to see the project listed as in post. Dating back to 1992’s Orlando with Tilda Swinton, Sally Potter‘s has pretty much checked off all the boxes in her lengthy career premiering at every major film fest and working with acting royalty. Berlin has been a home base for several of her most recent features including The Roads Not Taken and apparently Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning would have possibly been attached to a project which went into production with an Austin, Texas based Brexit-inspired comedy with cinematographer Robbie Ryan and production designer Carlos Conti on board.

Gist: A family, on an expedition scatter the ashes of an archaeologist, who battle survivor guilt and sibling rivalries. As they pitch camp at one of the archaeologist’s sites, buried tensions surface.

Release Date/Prediction: Potter has had a strong bound with the Berlin Film Festival – if this is indeed in post then we imagine a repeat showcase.
