Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #76. Sudabeh Mortezai’s Europa


After a pair of docu features,  Austrian–Iranian filmmaker Sudabeh Mortezai finds herself on a firm path with fiction films with Berlin competition selected Macondo being followed by 2018’s Joy (Giornate degli Autori – Venice Film Festival). Mortezai would be working on her next project titled Europa – which is set in Albania and could have possibly started shooting in August. She once again reteams with her cinematographer Klemens Hufnagl on a project that will likely deal with a weighty subject matter and non-actors could be part of the strategy as well.

Gist: Unknown.

Release Date/Prediction: If readied in time, we could see the filmmaker wanting to test (and complete a triple treat) the waters at Cannes, but we are predicting an Orizzonti section slot at the Venice Film Festival.
