Venice Film Festival: Willem Dafoe, 4:44 Last Day on Earth

At the Venice Film Festival’s Excelsior Hotel Willem Dafoe discussed his role as an East Villager in Abel Ferrara’s comeback drama, 4:44 Last Day on Earth, where it was given its world premiere (and which also screens in the current New York Film Festival). Dafoe brings his customary gravity and reality to a startling premise that wonders: What would you do if you knew your end was near? The actor also examines what he learned for his made-in-Tasmania Toronto 2011 International Film Festival hit, The Hunter.
