Great cinema on the Piazza


A Piazza Grande for great performances. The fil rouge in the Piazza Grande programme at Locarno70 will be the acting. Powerful, dazzling, unexpected, appealing, moving, for a 360°filmic experience lasting 11 nights. The many faces ready to light up the big screen will be those of Fanny Ardant, Mathieu Kassovitz, Vincent Macaigne, Vanessa Paradis, Juergen Vogel, Irrfan Khan, Golshifteh Farahan and many others. The ribbon will be cut on 2 August by Demain et tous les autres jours, by Noémie Lvovsky, and following a long ride and a few stages overseas with the American cinema of What Happened To Monday?, the box-office hit The Big Sick and the unmissable blockbuster Atomic blonde, the closing night on 12 August features Swiss Gotthard - One life, one soul, by Kevin Merz.
