VIVAN LAS ANTIPODAS! at 68. International Venice Filmfestival

Friday, 22. July 2011

VIVAN LAS ANTIPODAS! has been invited to be part of the Opening Gala of the 68th Venice International Film Festival. The festival runs August 31 – September 10, 2011.

With this film Victor Kossakovsky grants himself a childhood wish. Haven’t we all asked ourselves as children where we would come out if we dug a tunnel right through the centre of the earth? Haven’t we all wondered at some point what was happening just at this moment beneath our very feet at the other side of the planet? In this film those reveries turn into reality. In breathtaking images and a stunning montage we go on a trip to the world’s rare inhabited land-to-land antipodes. We discover the wonders and contradictions of nature and people around the globe.
With unprecedented camera movements and exhilarating new perspectives our conventional view of the world is challenged. On the evocative title follows a revolutionary film, that gives three cheers to our planet and its people in all their antagonisms and commonalities: Vivan las Antipodas!

A film by Victor Kossakovsky. ma.ja.de. filmproduktion in co-production with Lemming Film (NL), Gema Films (AR), Aplaplac (CL) and ZDF, NHK, VPRO, WDR, in association with arte, YLE and CTC Network Russia.
