A LUXFILMFEST TRIBUTE TO TERRY GILLIAM

In 2021, Luxembourg City Film Festival pays tribute to a true cinematic legend: American-born British film director, screenwriter, animator, actor, comedian and former member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, Terry Gilliam.

 

After directing his fellow Pythons in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Meaning of Life, Terry Gilliam went on to write and direct films including Jabberwocky, Time Bandits and Brazil which was nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Screenplay and Best Art Direction. The Fisher King, won the Silver Lion in Venice in 1996, whereas 12 Monkeys competed for a Golden Bear at the 46th Berlinale in 1996. Two years later, he was nominated for the Palme d’Or in Cannes for his adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. A directorial all-rounder, Terry has also turned his hand to opera – directing Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust at the English National Opera. His labour of love, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, starring Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver, received the longest standing ovation in the history of closing films at Cannes 2018.

The acclaimed director’s work can be (re)discovered in a retrospective at Ciné Utopia and the Cinémathèque during the Festival, as well as later the Cinémathèque.

 

Forced to cancel his visit to LuxFilmFest due to the sanitary situation, Terry Gilliam confirmed that he would be willing to attend an exclusive Masterclass in Luxembourg, as soon as the situation will allow for it. More information coming soon.
