The actress Charlize Theron, starring in Atomic Blonde (screened tonight in the Piazza Grande), talks about her character: “I wanted to show how hard it is for women like Lorraine to share intimacy with other people, because they live in a world that’s surrounded by secrets and to be vulnerable is one of the most dangerous things that you can be.”
The Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra (Pardo d’oro 2015) introducing the Pardo d’onore Manor Jean-Marie Straub: “What would be best for mankind? That every cinema in the world shows a film by Steven Spielberg, or Straub? Which of the two would give the human race greater happiness? Why, clearly Straub’s film, we all agree!”
Gotthard – One Life, One Soul
More than a documentary about the music of the rock band, Gotthard – One Life, One Soul is the story of a friendship held together tightly between people who, through music, chased a dream, and then stomped and thundered this same dream on stages throughout the world. The film will be screened tomorrow, Saturday (August 12), at 9 pm in the Piazza Grande.
