The 2018 Close Encounters series includes the onstage conversation with one of the most intense and refined actresses of contemporary cinema, two-time Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett. Honored by the Academy for her roles in The Aviator by Martin Scorsese and Blue Jasmine by Woody Allen, the Australian actress boasts an exceptional roster of collaborations with directors such as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Wes Anderson, Ron Howard, David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh and Todd Haynes. After enrolling in the Department of Economics of the University of Melbourne, Cate decided to leave the university to study acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney and, after graduating, became a member of the Sydney Theatre Company. In 1997, she made her cinematic debut beside Glenn Close in Paradise Road directed by Bruce Beresford. But it was the following year that she was catapulted to the pantheon of the stars, for her performance as the haughty and resolute Queen Elisabeth in Shekhar Kapur’s Elizabeth, the role for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination and went on to win the Golden Globe. From then on, her career soared inexorably on the wings of her performances in very different roles, all played with style and elegance.

Blessed with aristocratic allure and the magnetic appeal of a diva from days gone by, in 2016 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees appointed her Goodwill Ambassador for her humanitarian commitment.

The encounter will be on October 19, 2018 at 17.30 pm. Tickets will be on sale from October 12th and you can go here to get. [Source]

When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other

‘Go on then: lock the doors and see what happens. Show me how much power you really have.’

This new play breaks through the surface of contemporary debate to explore the messy, often violent nature of desire and the fluid, complicated roles that men and women play.

Using Samuel Richardson’s novel, Pamela, as a provocation, six characters act out a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance.

The production reunites Martin Crimp (Attempts on her Life, In the Republic of Happiness) and director Katie Mitchell (Waves, Cleansed). Cate Blanchett makes her National Theatre debut alongside Stephen Dillane, who returns to the National Theatre for the first time since The Coast of Utopia in 2002.

Cate Blanchett covers Vanity Fair Italy, on stands the next October 3, 2018. Don’t forget to buy the magazine. Below you can read a part of the interview. Will add the scans as soon as I get these.

Cate Blanchett: «Il futuro che vorrei costruire»

Si dichiara femminista, e sa che «c’è ancora tanto da fare». Ma, dice, non è necessario radere al suolo il passato. È più importante credere nell’inclusione. Di tutte le «minoranze»

Qui un estratto dell’intervista di copertina pubblicata sul numero 39 di «Vanity Fair», in edicola fino al 3 ottobre 2018.

Cate Blanchett si è rotta un dito del piede poco prima di posare per le foto che vedete in queste pagine e di rilasciare l’intervista che state per leggere.
Niente di grave, incerti del mestiere. Il dito se lo è rotto saltando con troppa forza nell’enfasi interpretativa di un episodio di Documentary Now!, una serie ideata dagli stessi produttori dello show comico Saturday Night Live. Cate è stata chiamata a fare la parodia di un’artista-performer stile Marina Abramović.
«Una parodia o un omaggio?», si domanda, sorridendo, la splendida Cate durante questo nostro incontro, in qualità di global ambassador di Giorgio Armani Beauty.
Negli ultimi mesi, sui tappeti rossi – da Cannes, dove era presidente della giuria, a Venezia – è apparsa ancora più splendida e carismatica del solito, come se avesse raggiunto lo zenit dello stato di grazia e consapevolezza, capace di maneggiare alla perfezione, unica della sua specie, i segreti del divismo e del talento, della popolarità di massa e dell’indiscusso rispetto di registi, artisti, colleghi.

Tema del giorno: l’industria del cinema che cambia, le polemiche pro e contro Netflix. Lei come la vede?
«Lo streaming è una novità dirompente che serve ad aprire a un nuovo pubblico e a generare nuove forme di consumo del cinema. Probabilmente era anche una evoluzione inevitabile e necessaria, perché ha messo in discussione un sistema che si stava avvitando su se stesso: stessi film, sequel e prequel, stessi cliché e stesse strategie di marketing. Ma non ha senso dire che il cinema in sala non esiste più, queste esperienze possono coesistere. I festival, per esempio, continuano ad avere un grande valore perché hanno quel sapore di “evento” che inevitabilmente si perde se guardi un film a letto, in pigiama, addentando una pizza. Ma le cose diventano irrilevanti solo quando… diventano irrilevanti. E il cinema non lo è ancora».

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and actor, Cate Blanchett, will brief the United Nations Security Council on Rohingya issues on August 28, reported UNB.

Her goal is to draw attention to the plight and resilience of Rohingyas she met in Bangladesh on a recent visit, the UK office at the UN and the UN Refugee Agency tweeted on Thursday.

The UN Security Council will hold an open briefing on the situation in Myanmar under the UK presidency on August 28, said a senior official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council.

During her Bangladesh visit, Oscar-winning actor Blanchett urged Myanmar to create decent conditions in the Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas, saying the solution to the Rohingya crisis lies with Myanmar.

“Ultimately, I think, the key here is to address their statelessness,” she told UNB, mentioning that much more needed to be done to make sure there are decent conditions for the refugees to return safely when they want to.

Blanchett, who was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in May 2016, said the conditions right now in Rakhine are clearly not conducive to the safe and voluntary return, or the dignified return, of the refugees who have fled to Bangladesh.

The Myanmar authorities have shown little effort to make any tangible progress to improve conditions in Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas in almost one year into the crisis, though the international community, including the UN, remains actively grappling with the issue, officials said.

There will be further high-level meetings and events during the General Debate and high-level segment of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in September 2018. [Source]

Two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett will join the 13th Rome Film Fest to participate in a Close Encounter meeting with the audience and discuss her work as an artist and humanitarian.

Blanchett, a seven-time Academy Award nominee, won for her roles in The Aviator (2004) and Blue Jasmine (2013). She has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees since 2016.

“It is an extraordinary honor to host a wonderful actress such as Cate Blanchett at the Rome Film Fest,” said artistic director Antonio Mondo. “The versatility, the passion and the intelligence of her performances have made her one of the greatest protagonists in the history of cinema.”

Video artist and director Shirin Neshat also will participate in a Close Encounter at the festival, in collaboration with Videocitta. Neshat, winner of the 1999 Venice Silver Lion for best director (Women Without Men), has established herself as one of the world’s most visionary artists working today.

As previously announced, Martin Scorsese and Isabelle Huppert will receive lifetime achievement awards at the upcoming fest

Other guests include Sigourney Weaver, Thierry Fremeaux, Paolo Virzi and Luca Bigazzi.

Spoof series “Documentary Now!” is hosted by an Oscar-winner (Helen Mirren), with another appearing in last seasons’s two-part finale (Faye Dunaway), and a third now joining the fold. Cate Blanchett will star in one of next year’s seven episodes — “Waiting for the Artist” — IFC announced Wednesday. The installment will parody 2012 Berlin International Film Festival audience award winner, “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present.”

That film shares its name with the Serbian performance artist’s MoMA retrospective, in which she memorably locked eyes with each individual attendee, including Jay-Z (the encounter made its way into his “Picasso Baby” video). According to the IFC synopsis, Blanchett’s counterpart, Izabella Barta, “feels pressured to put on the show of her life” while rekindling her courtship with “an infamous provocateur of the art world,” Dimo Van Omen, played by Fred Armisen. “Waiting for the Artist” was filmed in Budapest this summer, and will debut around the time Blanchett’s upcoming Annapurna release, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” bows in theaters (March 22).

“Cate’s portrayal of an art-world superstar has her doing it all: performance art, comedy, and even her own stunts,” said acting IFC General Manager Blake Callaway. Blanchett, the former co-artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company, is acquainted with Abramovic in real life: Abramovic was a guest at a 2013 Sony Pictures Classics luncheon celebrating the actress and the film that garnered her second Academy Award, “Blue Jasmine.”

“Documentary Now!” was created by Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas, who has directed every episode with Alex Buono. All are executive producers on the show, as is “Saturday Night Live” mastermind Lorne Michaels, and “Portlandia” veteran Andrew Singer. John Mulaney is a consulting producer. The first two seasons each earned Outstanding Variety Sketch Series Emmy nominations. A new episode has not aired since October 2016.

Actor is cast opposite Stephen Dillane in production to be directed by Katie Mitchell

Cate Blanchett is to return to the UK stage for the first time in seven years when she makes her debut at the National Theatre in a new play by Martin Crimp.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Australian actor, who lives with her family in East Sussex, has been cast with Stephen Dillane in a production to be directed by Katie Mitchell.

Blanchett is an experienced stage actor and with her husband, Andrew Upton, was in charge of the Sydney Theatre Company from 2008-2013.

But the actor has been best known in recent years for her movie roles, including Blue Jasmine, Carol, the Hobbit films and Ocean’s 8. Her last UK stage appearance was at the Barbican in London in 2012 in Botho Strauss’s Big and Small.

Crimp’s play is called When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other – Twelve Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela. Richardson’s Pamela, a kind of 18th-century Fifty Shades of Grey, is an epistolary novel about a young maid terrorised and imprisoned by a libertine nobleman. It caused a sensation after it was published in 1740 with its theme of love and marriage across the social divide.

The National Theatre said Crimp was using Pamela as a provocation with five characters acting out “a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance”.

It said the play would break through “the surface of contemporary debate to explore the messy, often violent nature of desire, and the fluid, complicated roles that men and women play”.
