After a critically acclaimed world premiere at TIFF, Markus Schleinzers Angelo flies over to San Sebastián to embark immediately on its European premiere within the Golden Shell competition. The first San Sebastián screening of Angelo is scheduled for Tuesday 25.
INDIEWIRE is featuring Angelo among seven outstanding Toronto entries highly recommended to US distributors:
Schleinzers quiet, haunting portrait follows the character from an oppressive childhood to the later stages of his life,
when he continues to wrestle with the identity crisis at the root of his existence. Based on a true story, the movie tackles
a fascinating and widely ignored aspect of European history that could generate fresh interest in the hands of a distributor
willing to give the story the care it deserves.
