The Big Piazza of Cinema

Piazza Grande

Poesia sin fin by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Share:

An effervescent variety of blockbusters, arthouse films, debut movies, works by established masters. This is the main characteristic of a big screen which will lit up Piazza Grande from August 3 to August 13. If the opening film of the Scottish director Colm McCarthy, The Girl with All the Gifts, will lead us into a dystopian future which is strictly connected to contemporary issues, the closing film - Ashutosh Gowariker's Mohenjo Daro - will see the return to Locarno of a big Indian production with a beautiful mix made of epics, music and dances.
