Alfonso Arau's TV version of The Magnificent Ambersons and Oskar Roehler's Suck My Dick, the director's first film after Die Unberuhrbare, will make their world premieres at the Munich FilmFest, the event has announced.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet's French box-office hit Amelie will open the event's 19th edition, which runs from June 30 to July 7. The festival is mounting tributes to Jeunet and UK director Terence Davies and will present an honorary award to actress Jacqueline Bisset.
Already confirmed for the World Cinema section are Christopher Nolan's Memento, Alex de la Iglesia's La Comunidad, Waldemar Krzystek's Nie Ma Zmiluj (Sales) and Marco Tullio Giordana's I Cento Passi (The Hundred Steps). Arau's small-screen take on Orson Welles 1942 film, which has a cast including Madeleine Stowe, Bruce Greenwood, Gretchen Mol and Jennifer Tilly, will screen alongside Jan Harlan's Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures and Kubrick's 1952 documentary The Seafarers.
The American Independents sidebar has lined up Penelope Spheeris' We Sold Our Souls For Rock 'n Roll, Jonathan Parker's Bartleby and Tom DiCillo's Double Whammy. Suck My Dick screens in the Made In Germany section alongside Ralf Huettner's love story Mondscheintarif and Simon Verhoeven's directorial debut 100 Pro.
A Latin American focus features Arturo Ripstein's La Perdicion De Los Hombres and Ariel Rotter's Solo Por Hoy, while veteran Italian director Francesco Rosi will speak in a workshop with film students.
