Eighty-eight feature-length movies from 32 countries will be screened at the festival co-founded by Robert De Niro. The event runs from April 20 to May 1 in New York.
“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,” directed by Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli, recounts the turbulent career of the heavy- metal musician turned reality-show star.
Dori Berinstein’s “Carol Channing: Larger Than Life” tells the story of the Broadway diva who starred in the original “Hello, Dolly!” “L’amour fou,” directed by Pierre Thoretton, focuses on the relationship between designer Saint Laurent and his onetime lover and longtime business partner Pierre Berge.
Other documentaries include Sebastian Dehnhardt’s “Klitschko,” about the two Ukrainian brothers who have dominated heavyweight boxing for the past 15 years; and “Catching Hell,” Alex Gibney’s film about Steve Bartman, the Chicago Cubs fan whose deflection of a foul ball in the 2003 playoffs may have cost the team its first World Series berth since 1945.
Among the dramatic films announced today are “The Good Doctor,” a psychological thriller starring Orlando Bloom as a physician who becomes obsessed with a teenage patient, and “The Perfect Family,” featuring Kathleen Turner as a devout Catholic mother coming to terms with her imperfect family.
