Liev Schreiber to attend KVIFF

18472771-c031-861e-6282-1e519b3e20a2.jpg 

This year’s Karlovy Vary festival will welcome American actor, screenwriter, and director Liev Schreiber eighteen years after his last appearance.

In 2004, Schreiber was in town along with actor Elijah Wood to introduce the Czech-filmed Everything is Illuminated (2005). This adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s story of a young American looking for his roots in Ukraine was Schreiber’s directorial debut. In 2005, the film won the Laterna Magica Prize and a Biografilm Award at the Venice Film Festival.

Schreiber felt an affinity for the subject of Foer’s book because his mother has roots in Ukraine’s Jewish community. With a film and television career dating back to the mid-nineties, Schreiber’s filmography includes dozens of roles in popular Hollywood movies across a variety of genres: the romantic comedy Kate & Leopold (2001), the action flick

The Sum of All Fears (2002), the science fiction movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), the mystery-drama The Manchurian Candidate (2004), two sports biopics – Pawn Sacrifice (2014) and The Real Rocky Balboa (2016) – and last year’s Netflix hit Don’t Look Up (2021).

Liev Schreiber received five Golden Globe and three Primetime Emmy nominations for the title role in the television series Ray Donovan. This year, the seven-season series came to a close with the film Ray Donovan: The Movie (2022), which he co-wrote and executive produced.

Level 34, director: Zach Breder, USA, 2022, 25 min, International Premiere

Sometimes the story that led to a film being made is as important as the film itself. The director of Level 34, sixteen-year-old Zach Breder from the U. S. state of Georgia, has managed to fulfil a life’s dream at a young age – to write and direct a movie. This in and of itself is an extraordinary feat. But when we add one inexorable fact of Zach’s life – the fact that he has a serious heart conditions that means he must make every day count – we understand why he refused to wait to realize his dream.

My Sister Liv, director: Alan Hicks, USA, 2022, 70 min, World Premiere

When eight-year-old Tess learned that her mother was pregnant, she was not excited at the prospect of a sibling. But when little Liv was born with the same fiery red hair as her older sister, an unbreakable bond was formed that, sadly, was torn apart too soon. Liv grew into a young woman full of energy and with incredible musical talent, but even as a child she suffered from anxiety and depression until she was driven to a radical solution. Tess was left with a void in her life that she decided to fill by working with teenagers who have the same difficulties as Liv did. Grammy Award-winning director Alan Hicks has shot a touching and important documentary about pain transformed into hope.
