The Book of Vision is one of the films on IndieWire’s 2019 Sundance Wish List.


“The Book of Vision”
Director: Carlo Hintermann
Cast: Vera Graziadei, Lotte Verbeek, Sverrir Gudnason
Why We Hope It Heads to Park City: Hintermann has been in Terrence Malick’s orbit in one way or another for better part of a decade, having made a documentary and a written book about the great director; he also received a production credit on “The Tree of Life.” Now Malick is producing the nonfiction filmmakers long-gestating first step into scripted narrative, a story about an Italian doctor who unravels the secrets of 18th century physician Dr. Anmuth and his patients through studying his Book of Vision. Back in 2014, Hintermann compared the narrative structure of the film to “Cloud Atlas,” where “some characters from the past also reverberate in the present, and are played by the same actors.” IndieWire
