The 70th International Venice Film Festival
Sci-fi, irony and a special patroness: Eva Riccobono. Here is the 70th edition of the Venice Film Festival




t looks like, despite the highly respectable age, the 70th edition of the Venice Film Festival (28 August – 7 September) will be dedicated to everything new and to youth.

Eight weeks before the opening, this is what the heads up communicated by the Biennale so far seems to imply. Let’s start with the opening picture, Gravity by Alfonso Cuarón (Y tu mamá también, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men) which is described as a clever mix of the most popular genres among young people: science fiction (it is set in space), thriller (the space craft suddenly breaks down), adventure (the only chance of survival is to venture in the terrifying blackness of outer space).

It stars two actors loved across all generations of cinema goers: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Presenting Gravity in the role of patroness of this year’s Festival edition is model and actress Eva Riccobono,30, from Sicily, who, with her magnetic glam rock style and the powerful eloquent eyes (though hidden behind what appears, at first, an icy type of beauty) perfectly represents the new generation of cinema talents without being overexposed or excessively featured on the small and big screen.

The Festival’s new poster, instead, is clearly a tribute to the past, a homage to the films of two great masters of cinema like Theo Anghelopulos (whom the poster references with a frame nodding to Eternity and a Day with Bruno Ganz) and Federico Fellini, combined with the graphic and hand-made (the author does not use the computer) touch of Simone Massi, the animator, director and illustrator of the Festival’s theme video sequence. The poster illustrates a man depicted from behind who waves his arms towards a faraway boat that carries a child and a rhino. An ironic nod to last year’s poster inspired to Federico Fellini’s 1983 movie E la nave va (And the ship sails on) which symbolizes continuity and moving on at the same time.

An invitation to look forward and to travel with the imagination. Although there are already rumours regarding the films screening at Venice (there is talk of Il Capitale umano – Human capital - by Paolo Virzi; L'intrepido – The Intrepid – by Gianni Amelio starring Antonio Albanese; Quarantacinquesimo parallelo – 45th parallel - by Davide Ferrario; Romeo and Juliet by Carlo Carlei with Ed Westwick, Hailee Steinfeld, Paul Giamatti and Laura Morante; Il venditore di medicine – The medicine seller – by Antonio Morabito with Claudio Santamaria and Isabella Ferrari and who knows, we might even have Ettore Scola’s eagerly awaited film on Fellini Che strano chiamarsi Federico – How strange to be called Federico), we shall look forward to July 25th when Rome will host the press conference unveiling the Festival’s programme during which the whole list will be announced.

In the meanwhile, among the distinguished guests gracing the red carpet with their presence are: William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist, The Hunted) who will receive the Golden Lion for Career Achievement; Bernardo Bertolucci (1900, Stealing Beauty, The Dreamers) who will chair the Festival’s Jury and Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, Cat People, Auto Focus) at the head of the Orizzonti section.
