L’immagine e la parola


This year’s program for L’immagine e la parola, the Locarno Festival’s springtime event, will focus on the multi-faceted female universe, and on motherhood in particular. The sixth edition is scheduled to run from 16th through 18th of March 2018 at the GranRex Theater in Locarno.

At a time when the media spotlight is turned on the vulnerability of women working in film, the Locarno Festival has decided to allow young female directors, the creators of new imagery and perceptions in film and literature, to speak out.

So this time the event is conceived as a journey with multiple narrators, with a succession of talks and screenings along the way; the event is also intended to open a window on new developments in Italian cinema, so popular in the Canton Ticino and yet often not distributed here.

L’immagine e la parola is part of Primavera Locarnese, the spring-time festival of literature and the arts, together with the Eventi letterari Monte Verità, scheduled for 22 to 25 March in Ascona.
