L'immagine e la parola
From 10 to 12 March Locarno will host the fifth edition of L’immagine e la parola, the spring spin-off event of Locarno Festival.
Where does the inspiration of a great artist come from? What emanates from his imagination? L’immagine e la parola leads us to discover the universe of an artist, giving him the role of guest curator of the event, assembled together with Carlo Chatrian, artistic Director of the Locarno Festival.
Three days of screenings, readings and meetings to explore the relationship between the movie image and the written word, investigating on how the intellectuals of our time relate with film, and particularly focusing on a younger audience. Among the protagonists of the past edition, we count great masters of cinema as Sokurov and Reitz, writers such as Emmanuel Carrère, and artists like Lorenzo Mattotti.
This year’s edition of L’immagine e la parola, the fifth, will take place from Friday March 10th, to Sunday March 12th, 2017, at the Teatro di Locarno (Kursaal), at the Monte Verità and at SUPSI in Locarno.
L’immagine e la parola is part of the Primavera Locarnese, together with the Eventi letterari Monte Verità.
