iW NEWS | "Diving Bell" and "I'm Not There" to Bookend Woodstock Film Festival

Julian Schnabel‘s Cannes-award winning “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” will open the 2007 Woodstock Film Festival, while Todd Haynes‘ experimental Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There” will close the event, festival organizers announced Tuesday. Also on tap are three Centerpiece screenings taking place in the Catskills, New York home of WFF taking place October 10 – 14. Ira Sachs‘ “Married Life” will screen along with Patricia Riggen‘s “Under the Same Moon,” which will have its screening in nearby Rhinebeck. “Married Life” is described as ” a sultry look at sex, betrayal, murder and marriage among the tangled lives of four friends in the 1940s,” while “Under the Same Moon” revolves around a Mexican boy who embarks on a journey to find his mother working illegally in the United States. “After the successful U.S. premiere of ‘Far From Heaven’ at the Woodstock Film Festival in 2002, I am so happy to welcome Todd Haynes back to the festival with his new masterpiece”, commented WFF Executive Director and co-founder Meira Blaustein in a statement. “So much of Julian Schnabel’s work is steeped in the arts. To bookend the festival with music and art, is to so honor what the Woodstock Film Festival is all about.” [Brian Brooks]
