Festival di Berlino 2022, programma: Paolo Taviani in concorso e premiere nuovo film di Dario Argento

Annunciato il programma del “Festival di Berlino 2022”, Paolo Taviani unico italiano in concorso e premiere nuovo film di Dario Argento.

Annunciato il programma della 72esima edizione del Festival di Berlino (10-22 febbraio), che avrà come presidente di giuria il regista M. Night Shyamalan. Unico film italiano in concorso Leonora Addio del regista Paolo Taviani con le musiche del premio oscar Nicola Piovani. Il film racconta la rocambolesca avventura delle ceneri di Pirandello e il movimentato viaggio dell’urna da Roma ad Agrigento, fino alla tribolata sepoltura avvenuta dopo quindici anni dalla morte.

Come già annunciato, il Concorso Internazionale si apre quest’anno con Peter Von Kant di François Ozon che sarà proiettato insieme ad altri 17 lungometraggi, inclusi i nuovi film di Hong Sang-soo, Claire Denis, Ulrich Seidl e Rithy Panh. Questa edizione segna la prima volta di Denis al Concorso di Berlino con Both Sides of the Blade (precedentemente noto come Fire) interpretato da Juliette Binoche e Vincent Lindon. Il programma del Concorso prevede 17 anteprime mondiali più una internazionale, ovvero Call Jane della sceneggiatrice Carol Phyllis Nagy, con Elizabeth Banks, Sigourney Weaver e Kate Mara, che arriverà a Berlino dopo il suo debutto al Sundance. Per quanto riguarda i documentari, il cambogiano Rithy Panh è tornato in Concorso dopo la sua selezione nel 2020 con Irradiated.

È stato anche completato il programma della Berlinale Special, che include l’ultima collaborazione di Nick Cave e Andrew Dominik con This Much I Know To Be True, e il nuovo film del maestro dell’horror Dario Argento, Occhiali Neri, che vede la figlia Asia nel cast.

Come riportato in precedenza, il festival ha cambiato il suo formato per il 2022 a causa dell’incertezza legata alla pandemia in corso. L’European Film Market si è spostato online, mentre il festival prosegue con un evento di persona, anche se in formato ridotto, con ogni proiezione in anteprima che si svolgerà nei primi sei giorni dell’evento con la cerimonia di premiazione che si terrà il 16 febbraio. Ulteriori modifiche includono la capacità delle sale limitata al 50%, maschere e pass Covid obbligatori e nessun party è stato autorizzato.
