Pardo d’oro for a Master In awarding the Pardo d’oro to Jean-Claude Brisseau for his new film La Fille de nulle part, the jury of the 65th edition of the Festival del film Locarno, with Apichatpong Weerasethakul as its president, has made a decision to not only recompense one of the greatest living French filmmakers for his entire body of work but also to salute a feature film that is an exemplary gesture of cinematic freedom, beauty and courage. Like Tim Burton awarding him the Palme d’or at Cannes, Weerasethakul has demonstrated that a truly great filmmaker is able to recognise and appreciate the work of a fellow artist who has taken a completely different route from himself but still arrives as the same destination: cinema. Like the New Wave filmmakers before him, former teacher Brisseau was imbued with classical western culture derived from American cinephilia. The Thai director comes

from the world of contemporary art and interrogates the legends and history of his own country. There is no doubt an artisanal dimension and a particular mysticism (Marxist-Christian in the case of the French filmmaker, Buddhist in the case of the genius from Bangkok) that links the two men, despite their differences. Above all there is a tremendous belief in closely mingling ideas, sensations, feelings, and mise en scène. Among the messages of joy and amazement sent by admirers of Brisseau’s work on the announcement of the awards, there was one I found particularly fine. It came from a young French female director who was attending the festival for the first time: “So totally deserved. Cinema and talent win out. It’s fantastic because it cannot be easy being one of the last great ‘Hollywood’ filmmakers, inhabiting the lonely peaks”. Brisseau is no longer alone. He, alongside the other young filmmakers discovered at Locarno who believe cinema is still about courage and morality. Farewell. (Olivier Père)

Primavera festivaliera La formuletta è come una moneta liscia perché passata per troppe mani. Ma forse qui lo slogan “rinnovarsi nella tradizione” sembra attagliarsi millimetricamente allo spirito di un Festival come quello di Locarno che, chiudendo la sua 65esima edizione, gioca sempre al rilancio. Giovane per vocazione e DNA anche quando mette sul suo gradino più alto un autore del cinema francese, Jean-Claude Brisseau, che si reiventa in un film a basso costo, girato quasi tutto nel suo appartamento. Del resto, come diceva Jorge Luis Borges, la tradizione è fatta di continue rivoluzioni. O, quantomeno, di continue innovazioni. Una conferma che arriva anche nel darvi l’appuntamento al prossimo Festival. Che non sarà solo nelle date dal 7 al 17 agosto 2013 (la 66esima edizione) per la presenza di una nuova costola a marzo 2013 (dal 21 al 24) con la nuova kermesse L’Immagine e la Parola. Curata anche da Olivier Père e dedicata ai rapporti “migratori” tra cinema e letteratura. Uno spin off perché l’estate locarnese possa già iniziare nella sua Primavera. (Lorenzo Buccella)

Lo diciamo per scherzo, ma un po’ ci crediamo. E se i Pardi da domani in poi ci scappassero di mano? L’“allarme” viene da una notizia a cui facciamo fatica ad abituarci. Riccarda Stevan, la storica guardiana dei Pardi, dopo 19 anni di prezioso lavoro al Festival, se ne va in pensione. Proprio lei che, oltre a costudire tutto l’anno le prestigiose statuette, è stata il pilastro delle risorse umane (e forse anche mentali) del Festival e immancabile punto di riferimento per tutti quelli che hanno gravitato nella macchina di Locarno. Per questo il grazie all’unisono che le diciamo in realtà è gigantesco almeno quanto lo schermo di Piazza Grande. (L. B.)

With this new film, it looks like you wanted to go back to the roots, towards a low budget cinema which does not give up the courage of experimentation. I started again to shoot films with a small budget because I had the clear sensation that big productions could obstruct artistic freedom. So I decided to regain it, because I am convinced that it is possible to transmit emotions also with modest means at disposal. Afterwards, I can just say that I did not expect the film could be presented in a Festival. Being awarded such a prestigious prize is really a big surprise.

La Fille de nulle part wants to maintain a balance between philosophical cues, comical or (at least) poetical moments like the ones which have a connection with the arts. But I repeat, I was interested in the mix between different elements. Elements that (maybe) find a common point in the reflections on life’s illusions? This is of course one of the main themes of the film, as demonstrated by the main character (the old math professor) who is busy writing a book about life’s illusions that imprisoned him, from politics to religion to daily life, because after all –

Non avrei mai immaginato di venir selezionato per un festival. Figuriamoci vincere un premio così prestigioso!

Jean-Claude Brisseau 5 questions to He is one of the French cinema masters, but he surprised everybody with one of the most experimental films watched in Locarno. Thanks to the selfproduced La Fille de nulle part where he plays the main role, he was awarded Pardo d’oro 2012.

Your movie is able to mark theoretical, moral and aesthetical reflections without never stopping focusing on emotions... I have never liked to underline my intentions about the core of my films. Neither the technical, nor the narrative and philosophical ones. I wanted to mix elements exactly like I did with the few people I worked with on the set. After all, I was interested in keeping that intimacy and transmitting it to the audience. The intimacy, which marks the encounter between the man and the woman in the film, is haunted by ghosts, a surprising incursion to paranormal. I tried to find the right mix between daily life objects and a fantastic world that progressively comes into the film, but without transforming it into a fantasy work tout court.

Ho cercato di mescolare squarci di vita quotidiana con elementi fantastici e paranormali

as happens in some film scenes – when illusions fall, it is possible to come to craziness or to dramatic results. And, as it ofthen happens in your filmography, on the one hand there is a taste for romanesque while on the other hand there is an autobiographical mark, even if it is developed and hidden by the mise en scène. I can just write about things correlated to my personal life, then I mix them with imaginary elements. I wanted to reach a vast and simple audience, not only the élite. Making something difficult to put on a scene, but trying to hide this difficulty at the same time. (Lorenzo Buccella)

Pardo al Parco: ovvero, il Pardo ruggisce a Lugano

Un giardino, uno schermo, un pubblico. È nel pieno rispetto della storia del Festival del film Locarno che dal 12 al 14 agosto si tiene la rassegna Pardo al Parco, patrocinata dalla Città di Lugano, durante la quale il Parco Ciani ospiterà tre pellicole presentate nel corso della manifestazione. Rispetto della storia perché è proprio con una proiezione in giardino che il Festival vide la luce negli anni Quaranta; e se la sua

data di nascita ufficiale è quello storico 23 agosto 1946 in cui il giardino del Grand Hotel ospitò il film O sole mio, non bisogna però dimenticare che essa andava a proseguire un’esperienza che per due anni aveva coinvolto la città sul Ceresio: lì infatti s’era svolta, nel 1944 e 1945, una Rassegna Internazionale del Film. Lugano riscopre dunque la sua anima cinefila, e lo fa in grande stile: le proiezioni, tutte gratuite, saranno precedute a partire dalle 19 da esecuzioni di musica dal vivo, rese ancor più gustose dagli aperitivi offerti nel bistrò sotto gli alberi. Domenica 12 agosto tra i sentieri risuoneranno le melodie della jazz band di Marco Nevano, seguite lunedì 13 dallo psychedelic jazz degli Alabaster Quartet; a conclusione della rassegna, il 14 agosto, il giardino si tingerà invece delle note del violoncellista The winner is: Elisabeth Flory, CH – 6004 Luzern

Pick up your prize at the UBS branch, Largo Zorzi, Locarno.

1st Final Prize: Marius Tschichold, CH – 8006 Zürich

Dalle 21.30 invece la musica tacerà per lasciar parlare le immagini, vere protagoniste dell’evento: domenica 12 agosto, dopo l’introduzione del presidente del Festival Marco Solari, del capodicastero Turismo della Città di Lugano Lorenzo Quadri e del sindaco di Locarno Carla Speziali, tra gli alberi riecheggeranno i “rumori notturni” dell’ultima opera di Christoph Schaub, Nachtlärm, pellicola elvetica che il Festival ha presentato in Piazza Grande. Il giorno seguente sarà il turno di Ape, del “cineasta del presente” Joel Potrykus, insignito a Locarno del Premio miglior regista emergente offerto dalla Città di Lugano, oltre che di una menzione speciale da parte della giuria per la miglior opera prima. La rassegna si chiuderà martedì, quando a far da protagonisti saranno i Padroni di Casa di Edoardo Gabbriellini, presentati dal Festival nell’ambito del Concorso internazionale.

screendaily united kingdom by Wendy Mitchell

neue zürcher zeitung switzerland by Bettina Spoerri

Il Festival è fortunato: gli acciacchi della vecchiaia non sembrano sfiorarlo. Si mantiene, anzi, giovane. E non utilizzo questo termine a caso. La sua forza sta proprio in un pubblico che non trova eguali a livello internazionale: curioso, competente, cinefilo. Giovane a livello anagrafico ma soprattutto mentalmente. Il dato fondamentale è che, in ciò, il Festival del film Locarno si distingue da qualsiasi altro concorrente.

This week I joined about 8,000 other people at a free outdoor screening (…) in the famed Piazza Grande. The projection (and even the sound) in Piazza Grande were the best I’ve ever seen at an outdoor event and of course the setting itself is lovely (…). What’s most magical about the Piazza Grande is experiencing a film with that many strangers simultaneously. (…) Of course it’s impractical for industry attendees at festivals to always go to public screenings, but seeing one once in a while can be a strong reminder of what’s at the heart of this industry – witnessing a film connect with an audience.

Olivier Père, seit Herbst 2009 künstlerischer Direktor, präsentiert in der dritten Ausgabe unter seiner Ägide ein vielfältiges Programm mit künstlerischen und filmgeschichtlichen Höhepunkten und einer ganzen Handvoll hochkarätiger Stars. Dass neue Festivaldirektoren erst mit der dritten Ausgabe ganz auf die Höhe ihrer Möglichkeiten gelangen können, zeigt die Erfahrung. Mit Olivier Père bewahrheitet sich nun in Locarno diese Regel. Natürlich tragen auch Verhandlungsgeschick, viel Glück und ein dicker Geldbeutel zu einer gelungenen Festival-Edition bei.

by Éric Loret Locarno, festival de recherche, 65e édition – la troisième sous la direction d’Olivier Père. Où l’on rencontre ce qui s’invente dans le cinéma, sans être pour autant expérimental. Festival populaire à la fois, qui rassemble chaque soir 8000 personnes au plein air de la Piazza Grande (…). Après trois jours de visionnages, rien de médiocre, ni de malhonnête. Un bonheur de cinéphile, en trois sélections: deux parallèles («hors compétition» et «cinéastes du présent») plus une internationale, la plus importante (…). Les films sont contemporains, en urgence avec l’art du temps, dont ils reprennent les doutes sur l’identité, le lieu ou la trace.

by Pascal Gavillet Le sentiment qu’on ne pourra pas tout voir, tout couvrir, tout découvrir. Impression de trop-plein? Certes, mais dans le bon sens du terme. Car c’est le propre des grands festivals, Cannes, Berlin ou Venise. Locarno est de la même famille. Celle des géants. (…) A Locarno, ce sont bel et bien plusieurs festivals qui cohabitent au sein du même événement. Plusieurs cinéphilies différentes – en âges et en habitudes – qui se côtoient. Plusieurs concéptions du cinéma qui s’affrontent et se complètent. Pour, au final, dessiner et participer d’une topographie du septième art en mouvement constant.

by Graciela Cutuli Hasta el 11 de agosto, la tranquila ciudad suiza de Locarno va a rugir como un leopardo, valga la rima. Podría ser como un gatopardo, fiera más acostumbrada a recibir los honores del cine, Visconti mediante, pero es en realidad un leopardo, il Pardo d’Oro, animal-premio que recompensa cada año a la película distinguida por el Festival. Sin duda la experiencia es única en el mundo: las mejores creaciones del cine de autor bajo el cielo estrellado de los Alpes.

A Bellyful of Sports thanks to Top Events of Switzerland The 2012 Olympic Games offered a special program of competitions all along the Festival del film Locarno, but the sport season does not end tomorrow with the closing ceremony in London: thanks to Top Events of Switzerland (TEOS) – the association which collects the eight best events across the country, including our kermesse – it will be possible to live the same emotions also in the next months. For example, the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt (five-time Olympic gold medalist) will be challenged once again by Yohan Blake at the Weltklasse Zurich, scheduled on August 30th.

The golf tournament Omega European Masters in Crans-Montana (August 30th-September 2nd), instead, is a tasty appetizer of the sport which will be included in the 2016 Olympics program in Rio. And if you fell in love with horseriding because of the gold medal earned by the Swiss equestrian Steve Guerdat, you might be interested in the White Turf horse race in St. Moritz (February 2013). And finally, winter sports are well represented by the Ski World Cup in Wengen (January 2013).
