Isabelle Huppert Drama, Peter Sarsgaard Satire in Lineup – The Hollywood Reporter

The Giornate Degli Autori — the independently run event that runs alongside the Venice Film Festival and is often referred to simply as Venice Days — has unveiled the lineup for its 2023 edition (also it’s 20th).

Among the 10 titles world premiering in competition is Elise Girard’s drama Sidonie in Japan, starring Isabelle Huppert as a French writer mourning her husband’s death while on a book tour. Out of competition, Coup! — a satire set during the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic and starring Peter Sarsgaard and Billy Magnussen — will bow, while special events include the world premiere of This is How A Child Becomes a Poet, a short from Portrait of a Lady on Fire director Céline Sciamma (who was previously president of the Venice Days jury). There will also be a special day-long event in honor of late Candian director Jean-Marc Vallée, including a screening of his 2005 drama C.R.A.Z.Y.

Venice Days — often likened to Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight competition — opens with the Italian director Tommaso Santambrogio’s Cuba-set drama Oceans are the Real Continents.
