Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #28. Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein In Guanajuato

Eisenstein in Guanajuato

Director: Peter Greenaway
Writer: Peter Greenaway
Producers: Submarine, Fu Works, Climax Films, Paloma Negra Films
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Elmer Back, Stelio Savante, Maya Zapata, Lisa Owen

While filming had looked to begin this past fall, it now seems like January, 2014 may be a start date for Greenaway’s latest. While he directed a segment in the triptych 3X3, which bowed at Cannes last year, his last feature was the excellent Goltzius and the Pelican Company, which bowed in the Rome Film Festival, 2012. Amidst a flurry of inspired projects, including a biopic on Bosch as a continuation in his painter series, and another project titled Food for Love, an homage to filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein is definitely his latest project, which will no doubt be a sumptuous visual experiment.

Gist: The film will address Eisenstein’s 10 day stay in Guanajuato in 1932, when he filmed material for the film Long Live Mexico!”

Release Date: While this won’t be ready for Cannes, we’re hoping it makes an appearance on the Fall Fest circuit, with preference to Venice.
