Golden Lion for lifetime achievement to a “European” David Lynch

by 

US director David Lynch will receive a Golden Lion for lifetime achievement at the 63rd Venice International Film Festival , to be held on the Lido from August 30-September 9.

Lynch will be presented with the award on September 6, on the occasion of the gala for the screening, in the main theatre of the Palazzo del Cinema, of his new film INLAND EMPIRE (the director has not explained why the title is written entirely in capital letters). Lynch, a frequent guest at Cannes, has never been to the Venice festival with one of his films, but was president of the jury in 1994.

Shot entirely on digital and starring Laura Dern, Justin Theroux, Harry Dean Stanton and Jeremy Irons, INLAND EMPIRE is a European production by French outfit StudioCanal, which will also distribute it, with the participation of Poland’s Marek Żydowicz, director of the Camerimage Festival, in cooperation with Fundacja Tumult.

A large portion of the film was shot in Poland, in Łódź, and features several Polish actors (see news). Nothing on the film’s plot has been leaked, and Lynch has only revealed that it is a mystery set on the edge of the desert around Los Angeles, from which the film takes its name. The main character? "A woman who gets into trouble".
