Garrone’s “Pinocchio” in Berlinale Special Gala
The first titles of the 70th Berlinale (February 20th – March 1st) have been announced.
Among them, Matteo Garrone’s Pinocchio
in the newly designed section Berlinale Special Gala, that will hosts the
out-of-competition titles. In the words of Berlinale artistic director Carlo
Chatrian: “Garrone succeeds in re-telling the well-known story with his very
own world of images. Although he is faithful to Carlo Collodi's ideas, he has
nevertheless created a very personal Pinocchio that is much more cheerful than
we've experienced before.”
In competition in the Generation section of this year’s Berlinale, Ordinary Justice by Chiara Bellosi tells day in a large Italian courthouse.
Vivo Film’s Marta Donzelli is the producer of Siberia by Abel Ferrara, a full-fledged Italian film presented in the competition of this year's Berlinale.
Two Italian films in the Berlinale Forum, section of the festival dedicated to avantgarde and experimental cinema: Luca Ferri’s documentary The House of Love, and Zeus Machine. L’invincibile, the latest work of the collective Zapruder.
“People would rather die from tumor than hunger.” That’s just one of the shocking lines from Danilo Caputo’s sophomore feature Sow the Wind, presented at the Berlinale in the Panorama section.
