ANGELO (2018)

U.S. Premiere

Markus Schleinzer's audaciously stylized film is based on the life of Angelo Soliman, who was kidnapped from sub-Saharan Africa as a child in the 1720s, purchased from the slave market by a wealthy Austrian countess (Alba Rohrwacher) and raised and educated to be a "court Moor," a courtier/entertainer/exotic status symbol for the household. Over time, Angelo is passed from one royal house to another, eventually marrying and gaining a measure of freedom. But the same society that Angelo navigated so skillfully in life finds one last way to cruelly exploit his personhood in death. DIR/SCR/PROD Markus Schleinzer; SCR Alexander Brom; PROD Alexander Dumreicher-Ivanceanu, Alexander Glehr, Bady Minck, Franz Novotny. Austria/Luxembourg, 2018, color, 111 min. In German and French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
