Joseph Proimakis [Film Festival 12.02.10] Greece trailer news

As it broke in Greek papers today, a few hours ahead of the official announcements, Venice screened Attenberg will be showcased at the spotlight section in the upcoming Sundance festival. Attenberg's participation, comes after the film has had a full schedule of heavy fest entries since its acting award for Adrian Labed in Venice.

In the meantime, Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg, is finally making its way back home, preparing for it’s Greek debut at the upcoming Thessaloniki International Film Festival (which kicks off this Friday with Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours and drops its curtains on the 11th with Daren Arronofsky’s Black Swan). In anticipation of it’s Greek premiere, Movies for the Masses has an exclusive new clip from the film, and promises more to come as the film’s theatrical release approaches. You can watch the clip at the embedded player below, or head over to the original post.

Here’s the official synopsis, for the film that’s already screened at Toronto, Reykjavik and the BFI film fest, among other festivals: Marina, 23, is growing up with her architect father in a prototype factory town by the sea. Finding the human species strange and repellent, she keeps her distance. Instead she stubbornly observes it through the songs of Suicide, the mammal documentaries of Sir David Attenborough, and the sex-ed lessons she receives from her only friend, Bella. A stranger comes to town and challenges her to a foosball duel, on her own table. Her father meanwhile ritualistically prepares for his exit from the 20th century, which he considers to be "overrated." Caught between the two men and her collaborator Bella, Marina investigates the wondrous mystery of the human fauna.
