Oscar 2012: ATTENBERG Is Greece’s Best Foreign Language Film Submission

Attenberg, Ariane Labed
Athena Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg

Athena Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg is Greece’s official submission for the 2012 Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.

Last year, Attenberg earned Ariane Labed the Best Actress Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival, and the Special Jury Prize at the Thessaloniki Film Festival. In addition to Labed, Attenberg stars Yorgos Lanthimos, director of the 2011 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee Dogtooth, on which Tsangari worked as an associate producer.

Attenberg chronicles the complex life of Marina (Labed) a young woman with un unfulfilled sex life — not into men, not satisfied with women — and her relationship with her dying father. The title refers to the heroine’s mangling of documentarian David Attenborough’s name.
