iW NEWS | Berlinale to Fete Francesco Rosi

The “Homage” of the 58th Berlin International Film Festival will be dedicated to Italian director Francesco Rosi. The Berlinale, which takes place February 7 – 17, praised Rosi for work that reflects the “political, economic and intellectual developments in Italy.” Rosi will receive the Golden Bear for Lifetime Achievement on February 14. “With their explosive power, Rosi’s films are still persuasive today,” commented Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick in a statement. “His works are classics of politically engaged cinema.” [Brian Brooks]
