2019 Giornate degli Autori: Dominik Moll, Fabienne Berthaud & Bustamante Among the Selections

After competing in Berlin earlier this year with Tremors, Guatemalan helmer Jayro Bustamante can say 2019 was a stupendous year (with two films premiering at major fests) as he is among the eleven filmmakers in the 2019 Giornate degli Autori section at the Venice Film Festival. Bustamante’s La llorona will measure up against the likes of Dominik Moll (Seules Les Bêtes starring Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), Fabienne Berthaud (Un Monde Plus Grand starring her muse Cécile De France) and Manele Labidi‘s directorial debut starring Golshifteh Farahani. Section topper Giorgio Gosetti sees competing films compete for the Europa Cinemas Label, the BNL-BNP Paribas Audience Award, the GdA Director’s Award assigned by the jury of the Giornate and the Future Lion award.
