Ancora il grande cinema italiano sul manifesto della 70° edizione del Festival di Cannes, che si aprirà il prossimo 17 maggio sulla Croisette.
E’ un’immagine di Claudia Cardinale sui tetti di Roma nel 1959, che danza gioiosa a piedi nudi.
Il manifesto è, come sempre, straordinario per semplicità ed efficacia. Purtroppo il confronto con gli ultimi grigi manifesti di Venezia, firmati da Simone Massi, è impietoso.
Qui sotto il comunicato stampa ufficiale:
Full of joy, freedom and daring, just like Claudia Cardinale dancing on its official poster, the 70th Festival de Cannes (17-28 May) promises a celebration in passionate red and sparkling gold.
She dances, she laughs, she lives! Who better to symbolise the next Festival than Claudia Cardinale, the image of an adventurous actress, independent woman and social activist? Throughout the 12-days festival, the spirit of openness and welcome will infuse the Croisette – as it does every year – with pictures of a world that dares to look itself in the mirror, to stand proud and to speak out.
‘I am honoured and proud to be flying the flag for the 70th Festival de Cannes,’ says Claudia Cardinale, and delighted with this choice of photo. It’s the image I myself have of the Festival, of an event that illuminates everything around. That dance on the rooftops of Rome was back in 1959. No one remembers the photographer’s name… I’ve also forgotten it. But this photo reminds me of my origins, and of a time when I never dreamed of climbing the steps of the world’s most famous cinema hall. Happy anniversary!’
With Monica Bellucci as Mistress of Ceremonies and Pedro Almodóvar as the President of the Jury, the Festival de Cannes will kick off on Wednesday 17 May.
