Nineteen Movies Go Hunting a Pardo

A still from “Entertainment” by Rick Aversion, one of the 19 films in the Concorso internazionale.

The Concorso internazionale offers a program in which two first films play alongside those of a group of directors who have gained an appreciative audience on the international festival circuit. Some of them are making a welcome return to Locarno, others have returned to filmmaking after a long silence. As is now a Locarno tradition, the competition includes documentaries, personal films, more traditional fictions and those of hybrid genres.
