Mountains – Loneliness – Desire

10 short films on the mountains around Locarno. A workshop curated by Béla Tarr


Locarno was chosen by Hungarian director Béla Tarr as the ideal location for one of his renowned international workshops. About ten filmmakers, selected from international calls, will make a film, consisting of ten short films, set in the beautiful mountain scenery offered by the Locarno area.

The workshop, organized thanks to the partnership between Locarno Film Festival and CISA – International Conservatory of Audiovisual Sciences, will begin during the event and will last until April 8th and will be a unique opportunity to discuss with Tarr, in project development sessions. The first days will be dedicated to the focus of the individual projects, two days for casting and scouting, then the filming and final editing will start. The film will be presented at a special screening at the 72nd Locarno Film Festival (7 – 17 August 2019).
