Considered one of the great Hollywood rebels, Sam Peckinpah (1925 – 1984) made films that have made an impact on the collective imagination. The Festival is screening the director’s entire cinematic oeuvre, – in many cases, showing newly restored prints – and a selection of his television work, collaborations and films in which he featured as an actor. The screenings will be accompanied by discussions of Peckinpah’s work, with contributions from specially invited filmmakers and film critics, and a round-table discussion.

The retrospective has been curated by the programmer and film historian Roberto Turigliatto. The publication that accompanies the event, edited by Fernando Ganzo and published by Capricci, will be available in both French and English.
The retrospective is supported for the third time running by the Swiss Post. The event has been co-organized with the Cinémathèque suisse and the Cinémathèque française. In addition to the two cinémathèques with whom the Festival has collaborated in putting the retrospective together, several other institutions will also screen this tribute to Peckinpah, including the Filmpodium in Zurich, the Cinémas du Grütli in Geneva, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin and the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York.

Among the guests attending Locarno: the Mexican actress Isela Vega, the Austrian actress Senta Berger and the producer and Peckinpah’s collaborator Kathy Haber.
