The 64th Locarno International Film Festival today revealed the first two titles in its International Competition: Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Un amour de jeunesse,” and Gianluca and Massimiliano De Serio’s “Sette opere di misericordia.”
Hansen-Løve made her Locarno debut in 2004 with her short film, “Apres relexion.” She has since gone on to helm the Cesar nominated “Tout est pardonné,” and the Cannes winner “Father of My Children.” “Un amour de jeunesse” marks her third feature film.
“Sette opere di misericordia” is the first fiction feature from the De Serio twin brothers. Their short films “My Brother Yang” and “Zakaria” were both nominated for the David di Donatello Prize.
The full lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. The 64th edition of the Festival del film Locarno will take place August 3 – 13 in the Swiss lakeside resort town.
