A mysterious but absolutely striking poster has been released for Siberia, the latest collaboration between Willem Dafoe and Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara.
Set to premiere at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival later this month, Siberia is a psychological drama lead by Dafoe. His character Clint (no relation to the boss man here!) is, as Cineuropa describe:
(…) a broken man who lives alone in the heart of a frozen tundra. But despite his isolation, he can neither escape from the world nor find peace. One evening, he embarks upon a journey, travelling through his dreams, memories and imagination, trying to make his way through the darkness and into the light.
Joining Dafoe are Ferrara’s own daughter Anna Ferrara, Dounia Sichov, Simon McBurney, Valentina Rozumenko, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Phil Neilson, Fabio Pagano, Laurentio Arnatsiaq and Ulrike Willenbacher.
Written by Ferrara and Chris Zois, Siberia is likely to release sometime in 2020, but has yet to receive an official date or distribution.
This is the fifth collaboration between Dafoe and Ferrara, following New Rose Hotel (1998), Go Go Tales (2007), 4:44 Last Day on Earth (2011) and Pasolini (2014).
