(AP) Director Peter Landesman says he licensed the infamous footage of John F. Kennedy's assassination for his film "Parkland" but decided to present it in reflection, and not as a straight image, to present events from an angle no one has seen before.


Landesman called Abraham Zapruder's film "probably the most-examined film in history," but said his movie "is not out to pick a fight" over conspiracy theories.


He therefore chose to show the historic images reflected in the eyeglasses of Zapruder, played by Paul Giamatti, to give the perspective of a witness. He said the film aims to show "the disorientation and the chaos" of the day and present events from a new perspective.


The film, with an ensemble cast, premieres Sunday in competition at the Venice Film Festival.
