Mumbai: Black Swan by American filmmaker Darren Aronofsky will be the opening feature film – in Competition – of the 67th Venice International Film Festival.
A psychological thriller set in the world of New York City Ballet, Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis).
Black Swan takes a thrilling and terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.
The 67th Venice International Film Festival will take place on the Lido from September 1 through 11 2010, directed by Marco Mueller and organized by la Biennale di Venezia under the chairmanship of Paolo Baratta.
“The cast and crew of Black Swan are both excited and humbled by the festival’s invitation. It is an honor to walk the great red carpet on the Lido and we are excited to premier our film to the audiences in Venice”, said Aronofsky.
