Documentaries about the work of filmmakers Peter Bogdanovich and Arthur Penn (pictured) have joined the 71st Venice International Film Festival line-up.

Director Bill Teck’s One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich & The Lost American Film largely focuses on The Last Picture Show filmmaker’s 1981 film They All Laughed, which was rediscovered by directors Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach after it fell victim to distribution problems. The doc also delves into the director’s life and career, as well as his relationship with the late actress Dorothy Stratten.

Bogdanovich’s latest feature, She’s Funny That Way, is also screening out-of-competition at this year’s festival.

The other doc addition is Mise En Scène with Arthur Penn (A Conversation), which features a series of interviews with the late filmmaker conducted by director Amir Naderi. Both films will screen as part of the festival’s Venice Classic program.

Previously announced docs playing this year include Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence, Ulrich Seidl’s In The Basement and Gabriele Salvatores’ Italy In A Day. The Venice International Film Festival runs from August 27 to September 6.
