"La Antena" to Open 36th International Film Festival Rotterdam this Month

Argentine director Esteban Sapir's world premiere, "La Antena" will open the 36th International Film Festival Rotterdam, screening in the fest's Tiger Awards competition. The film is one of nineteen new Hubert Bals Fund supported films, including eight world premieres, in Official Selection. According to the festival, the film "is set in a surrealistic, snow covered city ruled by Mr. TV who controls all spoken word, which he uses for broadcasts as well as for food production. It has left the inhabitants speechless and dependent, and only 'La Voz,' a female singer, escapes the rule of Mr. TV. The festival also released additional titles, including Malaysian director Tan Chui Mui's "Love Conquers All" (European premiere), also screening in the Tiger competition. Also making world premieres are Philippines director Lav Diaz's "Heremias (Book One: The Legend of the Lizard Princess)" in the Maestros: Kings and Aces section as well as Ukrainian Eva Neymann's "U Reki" (Cinema of the World: Time & Tide section). The festival takes place January 24-February 4 in the Dutch city. For more information, visit the festival's website. [Brian Brooks]
