The Book of Vision, directed by Carlo S. Hinterman, and executive produced by filmmaker Terrence Malick, will officially open the 35th edition of the Venice International Film Critics’ Week, the sidebar section organized by the Union of Italian Film Critics (SNCCI) within the 77th Venice International Film Festival.
The film tells the story of a fascinating journey between past and present, life and death, the deepest sorrow and unconditional love.
Eva, a doctor and student of the history of medicine, discovers a manuscript by Johan Anmuth, an 18th century physicist. In his Book of Vision, Anmuth focuses on the feelings, fears and dreams of over 1800 of his patients, whose spirits still wander through the pages.
Immersing herself in these tales and visions, Eva questions the separation of the past, present and future, while confronting the challenges of modern medicine and its limitations with respect to her own body
The Book of Vision stars Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) Lotte Verbeek (The Black List, Outlander, Borgia), Sverrir Gudnason (Borg McEnroe) Isolda Dychauk (Borgia, Faust, TwoGirls) and Filippo Nigro.
