Dalíland - TIFF 2022

‘Dalíland’ starring Sir Ben Kingsley will close TIFF 2022

2022 Toronto International Film Festival

Mary Harron’s Dalíland, starring Sir Ben Kingsley, will close out the 47th Toronto International Film Festival on September 17 at Roy Thomson Hall.

“We couldn’t be prouder that Harron is a Canadian who has taken her singular explorations of iconic eccentrics to the world stage”, mentioned Cameron Bailey in a recent press release. “In portraying the wild relationship between Salvador Dalí and his partner, Gala, Harron continues to keep moviegoing fresh.”

Dalíland chronicles the later years of the fascinating marriage between genius Salvador Dalí and his wife Gala. The story is told from the eyes of James, a young assistant of Dalí keen on making a name for himself in the art world. The film is set in 1973 Spain and New York.

In addition to the great Sir Ben Kingsley, the film also stars Barbara Sukowa, Christopher Briney, Rupert Graves, Alexander Beyer, Andreja Pejic, Mark McKenna, Zachary Nachbar-Seckel, Avital Lvova, and Suki Waterhouse.

John C. Walsh has penned the screenplay for the film.
