First Trailer for Mia Hansen-Løve’s ‘Maya’ Follows a Journey of Rehabilitation
Following up Goodbye First Love, Things to Come, Eden, and more of the best films of the century thus far, Mia Hansen-Løve returned this year. Premiering on the fall festival circuit was her latest film, Maya, and while it’s still awaiting U.S. distribution, those in France are lucky enough to see it upon its release in December. Ahead of the theatrical release, the first trailer has arrived for the film that follows a French war reporter who was taken to hostage in Syria and then heads to India after months in captivity.
Josh Lewis said in his TIFF review, “Compounded by lush photography and carefully calibrated performances, Maya intimately renders the crushing and rehabilitative power of memory, taking hazy, elusive feelings and bringing them into the realm of the tangible.” See the trailer below for the film starring Roman Kolinka, Aarshi Banerjee, Alex Descas, Pathy Aiyar, Suzan Anbeh, Judith Chemla, and Johanna Ter Steege.
Maya hits theaters in France on December 19 and is awaiting U.S. distribution.
