Willem Dafoe is set to have a big year. He's currently set to appear in Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch, Guillermo Del Toro's Nightmare Alley, Paul Schrader's The Card Counter, and The Northman (of which he'll be re-teaming with his Lighthouse director, Robert Egger). But before all that glory, Dafoe's film from last year, Siberia, will see him riding solo in the lead as Clint, an English-speaker who has abandoned his former life and now runs a bar in the eponymous Russian city where most of the few guests do not speak English. The catch? He suffers from hallucinations and embarks on a dog-sled journey to a nearby cave where he confronts his dreams and memories, including of his father, brother, former wife and son, trying to make sense of his life.
While making it's world premiere in the main competition section at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival last year (where it competed for the Golden Bear), due to COVID-19 the film will finally make it's theatrical debut on June 18th. This will be followed by a release on digital and On Demand on June 22nd. With that, the official trailer for the film has been released. Check it out below:
Siberia is directed by Abel Ferrara (Who co-wrote the script with Christ Zois).
