Locarno to honour Marco Bellocchio

12 May 2015 5:13 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Italian auteur is to receive the Pardo d’onore at the Locarno Film Festival in August.

Italian director Marco Bellocchio is to be honored with the Pardo d’onore Swisscom at this year’s Locarno Film Festival.

Bellocchio’s debut feature Fists In The Pocket screened at Locarno in 1965, winning the Vela d’argento, and the film will play again this year as a special Piazza Grande screening on August 14. The restored print is being sold internationally by The Match Factory.

Bellocchio will also take part in a masterclass in the Spazio Cinema.

A regular visitor to Locarno, the Italian auteur’s Victory March played in competition in 1976. He was president of the jury in 1997 and in 1998, the Festival featured a major retrospective of his work.

Previous recipients of the Pardo d’onore include Jean-Luc Godard, Ken Loach, Sidney Pollack, William Friedkin, Jia Zhang-ke, Alain Tanner, Werner Herzog and, in 2014, Agnès Varda »

Locarno Film Festival To Celebrate Italian Auteur Marco Bellocchio With Career Nod

12 May 2015 3:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Locarno Film Festival will celebrate veteran Italian auteur Marco Bellocchio with its Pardo d’onore Swisscom and also screen the freshly restored version of his 1965 debut, dysfunctional family drama “Fists in the Pocket.”

“Fists” was pretty incendiary in its day, starring a Brando-esque Lou Castel as a rich young epileptic tearing apart his family with fratricide, matricide and even suggested sister incest. It first screened at Locarno.

“We are showing the film in a restored print as both an appropriate tribute to the start of his trajectory as a major filmmaker, and an indication of a programming policy that has remained faithful to its principles,” said Locarno artistic director Carlo Chatrian in a statement.

The restored print produced by Bellocchio’s Kavac Film and executed by the Cineteca di Bologna film archives and its “L’immagine ritrovata” laboratories, with support from Giorgio Armani, will screen on Locarno’s Piazza »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #65. Marco Bellocchio’s L’ultimo Vampiro

6 January 2015 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

L’ultimo Vampiro

Director: Marco Bellocchio // Writer: Marco Bellocchio

Marco Bellocchio is a key figure from mid-60s radical Italian cinema with his 1965 film Fists in the Pocket. He’s gone on to enjoy a steady filmography with intermittent renewals of interest in his work, such as critical hits with titles like Good Morning, Night (2003), and, most recently with his scalding Vincere (2009). While we found his Isabelle Huppert/Toni Servillo headlined euthanasia film Dormant Beauty (2012) to be a bit overwrought (we interviewed the filmmaker then) , we’re excited to see his latest, which has received a provocative new title, L’ultimo Vampiro (The Last Vampire)—formerly known as La Monaca. Bellocchio reunites with Rohrwacher and his regular cast mate Roberto Herlitzka for this tale based on the true tale of a 17th century noblewoman forced to become a nun, but whose free-spirited love affairs inside the convent lead to incarceration. »
