Baumbach's White Noise to open 79th Venice Film Fest

'Original, ambitious, compelling piece of art' says Barbera

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 25 - American director Noah Baumbach's White Noise will open the 79th Venice Film Festival when it kicks off on August 31, organizers said on Monday.
    Based on a book by Don DeLillo, White Noise stars Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig and Don Cheadle and examines an American family's quest for happiness in an uncertain world.
    "It is a great honour to open the 79th Venice Film Festival with White Noise," said Festival Director Alberto Barbera.
    "It was worth waiting for the certainty that the film was finished to have the pleasure to make this announcement.
    "Adapted from the great Don DeLillo novel, Baumbach has made an original, ambitious and compelling piece of art, which plays with measure on multiple registers: dramatic, ironic, satirical.
    "The result is a film that examines our obsessions, doubts, and fears as captured in the 1980's, yet with very clear references to contemporary reality." Baumbach is returning to the festival after premiering Marriage Story in Venice in 2019. (ANSA).
