We’ve seen different directors take on their own shorts for a great number of omnibus works, but in a new project, 17 different helmers will each be taking a chapter from Tim Winton‘s novel The Turning to form a full-length film. Not only featuring the directorial debut of Mia Wasikowska and David Wenham, the project also includes work from Snowtown‘s Justin Kurzel and many more.
We’ve now got the first teaser trailer today, which includes our first look at such actors as Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, and Miranda Otto. The film spans around 30 years in a small coastal community and I’m a sucker for ambitious storytelling methods such as this one, so I can’t wait to check it out. See the teaser and poster below, also featuring directors Jonathan auf der Heide, Tony Ayres, Shaun Gladwell, Ashlee Page, Stephen Page, Rhys Graham, Ian Meadows, Yaron Lifschitz and Claire McCarthy.
The Turning will premiere at Melbourne International Film Festival next month.

What dictated these labels […]
