Locarno 2020 inaugurates its hybrid edition, streaming the Opening Ceremony from the cinema GranRex in Locarno. Director Kelly Reichardt will participate in the ceremony via digital link. This will be followed by the screening of First Cow (2019), the director's new film, which was enthusiastically received at the Telluride Film Festival 2019 and the Berlinale 2020, one of the last times cinema was able to express itself as a great collective experience to be enjoyed from inside the theater. Just a few days after the screening in Berlin, Europe was in confinement, leading to the suspension of work on film sets and the closure of cinemas, ultimately upsetting entire economies. For those in Locarno, you can book your ticket online by consulting the program of films available in Locarno, subject to seating availability. For viewers not present in the theater, the ceremony will be available online and will be followed by the launch of the Festival's online player to watch the films on the program.
