It’s not only “Nomadland” that is the exciting title from the Venice line-up but it’s the only major American one, for obvious reasons. Other American titles include “The World to Come” and “Pieces of a Woman”, both starring Vanessa Kirby.
Michel Franco and Andrey Konchalovsky are among the directors to appear in competition, and it’s also worth noting that there are more female filmmakers than usual in the line-up.
The non-fiction line-up is even more exciting to some degree because we get “Welles”/”Hopper”, that meeting between Orson Welles and Dennis Hopper, alongside new documentaries by acclaimed auteurs Luca Guadagnino and Abel Ferrara.
