Flashback #32: “Otar Iosseliani”


“Compared to the other great festivals in which commercial reasons are dominant, Locarno remains the most important one for arthouse cinema, which is made with the musculature of thought”. It is a love declaration, but also an incentive for making Locarno keep setting its course, looking for high quality movies and authors. The quote is taken from the Piazza Grande stage, in 2013, rashly pronounced by Otar Iosseliani – one of those directors who have transformed their irregularity into a beautiful cinematographic style.
