Diverse as always, the Telluride Film Festival presents its usual eclectic mix of standout films, foreign gems, and old classics.
Documentaries look to have a major focus this year in Telluride. Martin Scorsese and Kent Jones will be premiering A Letter to Elia, a full-length documentary about the late Elia Kazan. Errol Morris and Ken Burns will also be premiering their documentaries, Tabloid and The 10th Inning. Tabloid is about a former Miss Wyoming that abducts and imprisons a Mormon Missionary, and The 10th Inning is a follow up to Ken Burns’ famous Baseball miniseries. Werner Herzog will also be present for his documentary about the indigenous people of the village Bakhtia at the river Yenisei in the Siberian Taiga. To round it up, the Cannes favorite, Inside Job, will also be making its U.S. premiere.
