Guests of Honour:
Blutch and Lorenzo Mattotti
Blutch is one of the leading creators of graphic novels in France. The artist has established a solid and ongoing relationship to film, having worked with
Alain Resnais and directors from the younger generations such as Mathieu Amalric and Bruno Podalydès. His essay Pour en finir avec le Cinéma, described by Cahiers du Cinéma as one of the most important theoretical works about film, is a reflection on the seventh art at the dawn of the 21st century.
In 1984 Lorenzo Mattotti produced Fuochi, which has been translated all over the world, winning several major international awards. Mattotti currently
works as an illustrator for leading international magazines, including The New Yorker, Le Monde, Das Magazin, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Nouvel Observateur, Corriere della Sera and La Repubblica. In 2000 he created the official poster for the Cannes Film Festival, and in 2004 contributed to the film Eros by
Michelangelo Antonioni, Wong Kar-wai and Steven Soderbergh, creating the linking segments between the three episodes. More I Italiano
