Over the years the Locarno retrospectives have delved into every corner of cinema history: from great career monographs (including Ozu, Guitry or Welles) to themed programs (such as Another History of Soviet Cinema 1926–1968, Titanus or the Cinema in the Young Federal Republic of Germany, in the years 1949 to 1963 or the Black Cinema); from wide-ranging tributes to contemporary filmmakers of the caliber of Bellocchio, Kiarostami and Kaurismäki, to complete retrospective seasons of acknowledged great masters such as Lubitsch, Minnelli, Preminger and Cukor, Sam Peckinpah, Jacques Tourneur and Leo McCarey.
