The newest movie by provocative Lars von Trier is in the selection for this year's edition of the festival.

Her partners are a whole galaxy of Hollywood and European cinema - Stellan Skarsgard, Shia Lebof, Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, William Defoe and others.
Pictures of one of the most influential artists in the recent history Edward Hooper come alive in the move, directed by Gustav Deutsch - "Shirley: Perceptions of Reality".
Hooper not only inspires the Austrian director Gustav Deutsch, but is becoming a primary presence in the move.

"Shirley: Perceptions of Reality" is a movie which reminds of itself by its real language.
