L'immagine e la parola
The fourth edition of L’immagine e la parola, the spring event of the Festival del film Locarno, is to focus on the vibrant and multi-faceted galaxy of the Graphic novel.
From 10 to 13 March, Locarno will welcome two of the leading artists of comics and graphic narration, Blutch and Lorenzo Mattotti. They have worked with the Festival to draw up a special program of four days of screenings and discussions to explore their universe, which is inspired by the iconic impact of the cinema in the collective imagination. This year as always the accent will be heavily on the younger audience of film and fine arts students, including two dedicated workshops with the artists.
The main venues for the event will be the Teatro di Locarno (Kursaal) and the Monte Verità in Ascona. Further details of the program and participating guests will be announced at the press conference scheduled for 22 February in Locarno.
L'immagine e la parola is part of the Primavera Locarnese, along with Eventi letterari Monte Verità.
