Documentary Now! at TIFF 2022, & Armani Beauty LIP MAESTRO

Hi, everyone!

It has been announced that three episodes of Documentary Now! season 4 is part of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Docs lineup. Also, check out another video from Armani Beauty for their LIP Maestro ad.

Documentary Now! at TIFF

One of the Documentary Now! episodes premiering at TIFF is Two Hairdressers of Bagglyport, which stars Cate Blanchett as a salon staff and Harriet Walter as the salon owner. The festival will run from September 8th to 18th with tickets for general public to go on sale on September 5th, full schedule will be released on August 23rd.

In a whimsical touch, Thom Powers (TIFF Docs Programmer) has tucked something unexpected into the TIFF nonfiction slate—episodes from the upcoming new season of Documentary Now!, the IFC comedy series created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Myers and Rhys Thomas that lovingly parodies the earnest rigor of documentarians and the documentary form.

“We’re going to be previewing three new episodes from season 4,” Powers says. “One of those episodes is called My Monkey Grifter, which is a take on My Octopus Teacher, with the British actor Jamie Demetriou who people will know from Fleabag and other shows. Fred Armisen also makes an appearance in My Monkey Grifter. The second episode is a really warmhearted homage to Agnès Varda, starring the French actress Liliane Rovère, who fans of Call My Agent! will know as the endearing older agent in that series. And she is just pitch perfect as Agnès Varda in that episode. And the third episode is a pet project of Cate Blanchett, who has previously appeared on Documentary Now! And we’re expecting several of the people involved with these episodes to be at TIFF.”

Powers continues, “To have Documentary Now! as part of the [TIFF] selection not only brings a smile to our face, but [the show] is also just such a deeply researched and deeply appreciative reverie about documentary filmmaking that I couldn’t resist inviting it to be part of the program.”

The movie is also competing for Queer Lion’s 16th Edition. The Queer Lion Award was created as a collateral prize for the “Best Film with Homosexual & Queer Culture Contents”. Here’s an updated synopsis of the movie:

Lydia Tár is an acclaimed composer who rose to become the first female chief conductor of a German orchestra. We follow Tár during her daily life living in Berlin, leading up to the recording of her latest symphony, while her sentimental life (including a complicated tormented affair with a female cellist) clashes with and threatens her burning ambitions. Tár’s adopted daughter, the exeptionally brilliant six-year-old Petra, will turn out to be the rock Lydia needs, when everything in her life seems to start going wrong.

TÁR at 60th New York Film Festival

Hello, everyone!

TÁR has been selected as part of the main slate lineup of the 60th New York Film Festival. The festival which is presented by Film at Lincoln Center runs from September 30th through October 16th 2022. It will take place at Lincoln Center and other venues across New York City.

The charisma and emotional precision of Cate Blanchett are put to astounding use in this deft showcase for the actor’s nearly musical artistry, a stinging portrait of a world-famous orchestra conductor’s gradual unraveling that is the first film in sixteen years from director Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children).
