On the eve of its kick off on Wednesday night, the 2015 Sydney Film Festival has announced the last minute inclusion of three additional titles for its impressive line-up.
Coming hot out of Cannes where it took the best director award, Hou Hsiao-hsien’s “The Assassin” is a lavish and enigmatic martial arts epic set in the Tang dynasty in 9th Century China.
Also joining the list is Alex Gibney’s doco “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine” which gives a candid and revealing look at the father of Apple. There’s also Hemal Trivedi and Mohammed Ali Naqv’s new doco “Among the Believers” about the power struggle in Pakistan between secular leaders and Muslim extremists.
The full schedule and tickets for the new titles can be purchased at Sff.org.au. Expect plenty more coverage of films screening at the SFF when it commences on Wednesday.
