Trevorrow: I'm not directing 'Star Wars'
WHO Colin Trevorrow
THE MOVIE "Star Wars: Episode 7"
THE DEAL Speculation about this guaranteed blockbuster, due in 2015, has run so rampant that it's pulling in people you've probably never heard of. The latest is first-time writer-director Trevorrow ("Safety Not Guaranteed"), who several months ago hinted he was working on a well-known "mythology" with a sizable fan base. After Disney and Lucasfilm made their October announcement of the next "Star Wars," reporters began putting two and two together -- but earlier this week, Trevorrow told The Hollywood Reporter he was not the director. So what is the mythology he's working on? Trevorrow recently tweeted this teaser: "To clarify, there is another film we all love that I'm currently trying not to mess up."
THE MOVIE "Nostalgia for the Light"
THE DEAL In this 2010 documentary from Chile's Patricio Guzmán (no relation), the eerie Atacama Desert becomes a place where two groups of people search for the past: Astronomers observe distant stars through unusually clear skies, while women look for the remains of loved ones who vanished during Pinochet's regime. The film screens as part of the ninth annual OLA Latino Film Festival, organized by the Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island, which runs Saturday and Sunday.
THE MOVIE "The City Dark"
THE DEAL Ian Cheney's search for places where the night sky is still visible (which takes him to Montauk, one of America's darker corners), kicks off the fifth annual Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, which runs tomorrow through Sunday. The festival includes locally themed films such as "Shelter Island: Art + Friendship + Discovery," Lucy Winer's "Kings Park: Stories From an American Mental Institution" and the Ross School student entry "Shinnecock: Remember the Past, Hope for the Future."
