PANORAMA EUROPE 2019 FILM FESTIVAL LINEUP ANNOUNCED, WITH SEVENTEEN FILMS, INCLUDING NINE DIRECTED BY WOMEN
May 3–19, 2019 at Museum of the Moving Image and Bohemian National Hall
Festival opens on Friday, May 3 with the U.S. premiere of Mademoiselle Paradis, Barbara Albert’s sumptuous and satirical period drama with star Maria Dragus in person.
The eleventh edition of the essential festival of new European cinema, co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) and the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), includes a wide range of outstanding films by some of the continent’s most exciting emerging directors.
The festival, which runs May 3 through 19 with a full slate at MoMI and two encore screenings at Bohemian National Hall, offers New Yorkers an overview of the current European film scene.
The opening night selection is the U.S. premiere of Barbara Albert’s Mademoiselle Paradis, which stars Maria Dragus, one of Europe’s rising stars (known for her roles in The White Ribbon and Graduation), as an accomplished musician who is blind, bristling against the rigid social conventions of eighteenth-century Austria. Dragus will participate in a conversation after the screening; followed by a reception. Closing day includes the Greek film Pity, co-written by Efthimis Filippou, the frequent writing partner of Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite).
In addition to Maria Dragus, the Festival will include personal appearances by star actors Marie Baümer (3 Days in Quiberon) and Paul Portelli and Davide Tucci (Limestone Cowboy), as well as personal appearances by the directors Mindaugus Survila (The Ancient Woods), Elena Trapé (Distances), Sara Hribar (Lada Kamenski), Andrea Sorini (Baikonur, Earth), Zsófia Szilágyi (One Day ), and Bogdan Theodor Olteanu (Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl). Many of the films are U.S. or New York premieres.
