IFC Films will theatrically release the acclaimed documentary GORE VIDAL: THE UNITED STATES OF AMNESIA in New York on May 23rd and in Los Angeles on June 6th, with a concurrent national release. This is Gore Vidal’s last word and testimony.
After a triumphant premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival where it was a critical and fan favorite, the film has had equally triumphant screenings at film festivals and arthouse/independent film houses around the world, including the Melbourne Queer Film Festival, Young At Heart – Seniors Film Festival (Sydney, Australia), Sonoma International Film Festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, Filmfest – Washington DC, Independent Film Festival Boston, FRAMELINE37 - SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL LGBT FILM FESTIVAL, MARTHA’S VINEYARD FILM FESTIVAL, OUTFEST LOS ANGELES, Melbourne International Film Festival, New Zealand International Film Festival, Milan International Film Festival, Fabulous Independent Film Festival Florida, FILM FESTIVAL OF COLUMBUS, Lisbon LGBT Festival, 19th Athens International Film Festival, Aspen Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, Edmonton International Film Festival, PORTLAND GAY & LESBIAN FILM FESTIVAL, Zurich Film Festival, 57th BFI London Film Festival, New Horizons International Film Festival Poland, United Nations Association Film Festival, The Ojai Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and the Salt Springs Film Festival.

No twentieth-century figure has had a more profound effect on the worlds of literature, film, politics, historical debate, and the culture wars than Gore Vidal.  Anchored by intimate one-on-one interviews with the man himself, GORE VIDAL is a fascinating and wholly entertaining portrait of the last lion of the age of American liberalism.

Gore Vidal’s professional life spans more than 50 years of American politics and letters.  His return to America in 2005 marked the last great stage in his creative career and this film represents an extraordinary opportunity to share his view on America in the twenty-first century.  Featuring candid vérité footage of Vidal in his final years, the film explores his enduring global impact on art, politics, and everything in between.  His overview of the current state of the Republic and the health of US democracy is unique and incisive.

Directed by Nicholas Wrathall (Abandoned: The Betrayal of America’s Immigrants), the film features the final on-camera interviews with the iconic American writer, essayist, and singular intellectual.  Commentary by those who knew him best-including filmmaker/nephew Burr Steers and the late Christopher Hitchens-blends with footage from Vidal’s legendary on-air career to remind us why he will forever stand as one of the most brilliant and fearless critics of our time. Other featured interviewees includes Jodie Evans, Tim Robbins, Mikhail Gorbachev, Sting, David Mamet, Bob Scheer, William F. Buckley, Jay Parini, Norman Mailer, Nina Straight and Dick Cavett.

This is the definitive final portrait of one of the most brilliant social critics and thinkers of modern times. For more information, please visit www.ifcfilms.com or www.gorevidaldocumentary.com/

Campari presents the new Art Labels limited edition, a modern reinterpretation of a number of works by Fortunato Depero, one of the most representative artists of the Futurist movement and an artist who had a long association with Campari.

71400517-BottlesWhiteBack-original
Three collectible labels are the protagonists of the Campari limited edition and summarize three moments strongly related to the optimal consumption of the product: the preparation of a perfect cocktail, the pleasure of enjoying a Campari and its tasting.

The first label was inspired by a black and white ink sketch made on paper in 1928. It was a graphic study made for Campari, closely recalling aperitif time, revisited and re-colored, presented on a green background with the color red in strong evidence.

The second label on a yellow background depicts a collage dating back to 1927. The image takes up a sketch, the original of which is kept in the archive of the Galleria Campari collection, created by the artist with colored pencils. It represents the pleasure and passion of enjoying a Campari: the most evident detail of the portrayed character is his heart, which is colored as the liquid in the glass.

The third Art Label, which completes the collection, on a purple background, the only one already created in color, is a 1928 illustration created by Depero with the collage technique. The work depicts the iconic little man of Depero during the tasting of a Campari. The combination of colors has a particular impact and is also emphasized by the red liquid of the product.

Andrea Conzonato, Chief Marketing Officer, Gruppo Campari, commented: “The new Art Labels want to be a tribute to a great artist, Fortunato Depero, who worked extensively with Campari and produced truly unique works of art, connected with the brand by an unbreakable bond. Much of the artist’s production is kept at the Galleria Campari collection and is a piece of art history and of the company’s communications. The aim is to pay homage to the brand’s tradition and celebrate it in a new and original way by reinterpreting an art movement that still today is contemporary and very modern. Thus, Campari wants to present its consumers with a special collection that is a testimony to the strong innovative nature of the brand”.

The Campari Art Labels will initially be available in Italy from May 2014 and in the rest of the world thereafter.
