First Look: Terry Gilliam's Short Film 'The Wholly Family'; Will Premiere At Bradford Film Festival

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 22, 2011 at 3:04AM

Before he gets to his stint at the English National Opera this spring, directing "The Damnation Of Faust," helmer Terry Gilliam will get his latest short film venture, "The Wholly Family," in the can. First announced last year, the film stars Cristiana Capotondi, Douglas Dean, Nicolas Connolly and Sergio Solli and is being shot on location in Italy, and not without good reason. The film is being sponsored by pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples, and while details of what it's about have been kept under wraps, the project does have an original script by Gilliam and is not based off the Eve Merriam poem of the same name.

Before he gets to his stint at the English National Opera this spring, directing "The Damnation Of Faust," helmer Terry Gilliam will get his latest short film venture, "The Wholly Family," in the can. First announced last year, the film stars Cristiana Capotondi, Douglas Dean, Nicolas Connolly and Sergio Solli and is being shot on location in Italy, and not without good reason. The film is being sponsored by pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples, and while details of what it's about have been kept under wraps, the project does have an original script by Gilliam and is not based off the Eve Merriam poem of the same name.

Italian film magazine Ciak (via Bleeding Cool) has the first look at the film and it's every bit as visually intriguing as we expect from Gilliam and it won't be too long before audiences get a taste of what he has cooked up. The film is set to premiere at the Bradford International Film Festival where Gilliam is receiving the Fellowship award. Running from March 16th to 27th, the festival will offer up a retrospective of Gilliam's films and the director is honored, saying wryly, “To be honoured by such an important festival pre-posthumously will force my family to treat me with some respect while I’m still alive. I will always be grateful for that.”

The full lineup of the festival will be announced tomorrow, where a proper synopsis will likely appear. For now, there are more images of the film below as well as a behind the scenes video dug up by Bleeding Cool.
