In 2014, Damien Chazelle’s second film “Whiplash,” about the relationship between a sociopathic jazz instructor (J.K. Simmons) and a young student (Miles Teller), opened the Sundance Film Festival and eventually won the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize. It later racked up three Oscar wins and Chazelle was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Now, his next film, the romantic musical “La La Land,” will be the opening night film at the Venice International Film Festival, which starts tomorrow and runs through September 10th. See the brand new festival poster below.
