Noah Baumbach’s ‘White Noise’ to Open the Venice Film Festival

As the summer progresses, more news about the fall film festival season will be coming out. Today, we found out where Noah Baumbach‘s White Noise would be debuting, and it’s right where Netflix launched Marriage Story to great success three seasons ago.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, White Noise is the Opening Film for the 2022 Venice Film Festival. This comes ahead of the full lineup being announced tomorrow. Baumbach adapts the Don DeLillo novel and directs, with a cast that includes Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Andre Benjamin, Don Cheadle, Alessandro Nivola, and Jodie Turner-Smith.

The festival’s artistic director Alberto Barbera said: “It is a great honor to open the 79. Venice Film Festival with White Noise. Adapted from the great Don DeLillo novel, Baumbach has made an original, ambitious and compelling piece of art which plays with measure on multiple registers: dramatic, ironic, satirical. The result is a film that examines our obsessions, doubts, and fears as captured in the 1980’s, yet with very clear references to contemporary reality.”
