Fermo immagine Carlo Chatrian Artistic Director

I’m going to try to extract from my internal film of the Festival those snapshots that have most impressed themselves on my memory, knowing that others will emerge gradually over the weeks to come. The first scene sees a shot of a great man, walking slowly. But when he starts speaking in front of a piazza full of people, all doubts vanish: he is the “Lord of the cinema” who will begin my first Festival. Sir Christopher Lee says: “I’m old”. I think of all the teachers who have brought me this far. And I thank them silently. All the people in the Piazza Grande sit silently too, each word amazing and entrancing them. Applause bursts out at the end in a deluge. Shortly thereafter, as if in retaliation, a deluge starts to fall. This time, no metaphor, but actual rain. A vast crowd of courageous souls resists, staying there to enjoy the film under the downpour. “I’m not saying it out of flattery, or because I’m here, but Locarno remains the only festival that can do honour to the art of the cinema.” So says Otar Iosseliani. Some women have enough charm to make any gesture elegant. Others have the gift of simplicity. And then there are those – as precious as they are rare – who possess both qualities. Like Jacqueline Bisset.

At dinner, she tells me of the film she’s shooting with Abel Ferrara, another Locarno visitor this year. “He’s a director who knows how to look, and he risks so much! He changes perspective for every scene and for each one he allows himself only one take.”

At the Forum, Sergio Castellitto describes how as a young actor he found himself on set with living legend Marcello Mastroianni. The shot was framed as a close up on the great actor. Sergio was supposed to pass a watch close to his face, but in front of Mastroianni his hand was shaking and the watch kept clinking. Suddenly, the noise stopped. Another hand had stayed his trembling, remaining out of shot and without interrupting the take. Castellitto turned, looked, and understood… We select the films in the dark of our rooms. We watch them, imagining how they will be received. Until that moment we cradle them as though they were newborns to be sent to sleep. Then comes the moment of the encounter with the audience, and when it happens that the film is greeted by an ovation, you have the indescribable joy of a father watching his son walk. I have been lucky because during this edition, a number of films have been very well received, while several have really taken flight. I’m thinking of the 10 minutes of applause for Short Term 12 (four sold-out screenings) or the standing ovations for Los insólitos peces gato, Roxanne and The Special Need.

If a thousand people come to listen to a masterclass like the one held by Werner Herzog here at Locarno, then you understand that the strength of a Festival lies also in the encounters it facilitates.

Five questions to …

Serra vs Serra Auto-Interview of the Pardo d’oro 2013

Albert, congratulations for the Pardo d’oro! Tell me, when was the first time you came to Locarno? Well Albert, believe me: it is a funny story that makes me think to have really deserved this Prize. I was very young and I hitchhiked for one day in order to get to Locarno, then I caught a train. Why did I do that? Because I am a cinephile. I took a room (a very expensive room by the way) and I watched a movie in Piazza Grande: it was Exotica, directed by Atom Egoyan. I congratulated him, but I don’t remember the year. Then I ran out of money and I had to come back: train once again, hitchhiking at 7 AM near the place where I lived. A guy with a BMW 700 gave me a lift and I finally was at home.

I guess it was 1994. After almost 20 years, you are coming back to Piazza Grande to be awarded for Historia de la meva mort. What is the movie about? It is a movie about the beauty of horror, but also about the horror of beauty. I guess it is a smart sentence to describe the movie, Albert, and I used it also in its introduction. I think it is a story about the beauty of unjustice, but also about the unjustice of beauty.

Well said. How did you cast Casanova? Simply because Vincenç Altaió looks like Casanova! I just wanted a guy that likes women and is characterized by... How can I say, “great amateur talents”. Vincenç loves to show other people his qualities, he loves it. Probably, to humiliate them.


And what about your next film, what can you tell us about it?

My last question, Albert: which place has God in your conception of cinema?

My French producer wants me to shoot a film about war with many wounded people on the screen, but I don’t know: I am still immature for that. And then, you know, when directors get a prize, their next movie is bigger, more ambitious and with more budget at their disposal. In this case, however, I would like to send a message to my oldest fans: don’t worry, my next project will be smaller, crazier, more radical and less people will watch it!

When I shoot a movie I am used to reject any kind of communication: I don’t talk with actors and I ignore technicians. Therefore God is everywhere, His presence is total. Everything comes up on the set is because of Him, not because of me. I am doing nothing, I just let Him work. Tranquil. I let Him work tranquil. albert serra

Beyond the Festival

Not only is Locarno one of the world’s oldest festivals, it has a sterling record of discovering new talents. Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Aleksandr Sokurov and Abbas Kiarostami are among the acclaimed directors to appear in Locarno before they were well known. Locarno may be one of a small handful of truly European festivals, with no nationalistic tendencies or political concerns or influence from short-term industry trends in the DNA of many other festivals

Colonisée par les seniors qui viennent y passer leur retraite en regardant les bateaux sur le lac Majeur, la petite ville de Locarno se métamorphose chaque été au moment du Festival du film. Les intellectuels en quête de cinéma d’auteur investissent sa Piazza Grande avec écran en plein air. Un trésor du Tessin

El Festival de Cine de Locarno se reafirma como la mejor isla veraniega en el océano cinéfilo, un auténtico espacio protegido que alberga esas especies raras y fronterizas del cinem mundial que no encajan fácilmente en las programaciones de los festivales champions league y que, sin embargo, toman el pulso a la producción de autor más interesante, exigente y heterodoxa del momento, con especial atención a los directores jóvenes y a los formatos menos convencionales

Ein Festival, welches die Vielfalt des Kinos und die Grenzen des Filmspektrums erforscht, hatte Carlo Chatrian angekündigt. Und der neue künstlerische Direktor versprach damit nicht zu viel. Viele FilmemacherInnen wagten es, Sehweisen zu hinterfragen, Erwartungen zu durchkreuzen, mit Erzählformen zu experimentieren. Das war und ist eine Aufgabe dieses Filmfestivals, nämlich einem experimentellen, wagemutigen Kino einen Platz zu geben
