SPECIAL EVENTS, TRIBUTES, AND AWARDS

The Lions.

William Friedkin received a Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement before a screening of the newly restored Sorcerer (1977).

The Financial TimesNigel Andrews is one of the few to have written about a collection of 70 shorts by 70 directors, made as part of the Venezia 70 – Future Reloaded project: “‘Future overloaded’ might be a better title for this. Bidding to turn a Babel of trans-global artists—Olmi, Bertolucci, Schrader, last year’s Lion winner Kim Ki-Duk—into a symphony, or ‘cinergy,’ the film is intriguing if erratic. Gifted creators are given short straws (100-odd seconds each) and told to make bricks with them. Bertolucci is best, expressing the tragedy of disability—the director is permanently wheelchaired after a failed back operation—in the intricate, mesmerizing dance of a wheelchair’s wheels as they cross cobblestones. The title Red Shoes, the color of the otherwise unseen rider’s footwear, is a homage to Michael Powell’s dance drama classic, shod in irony here yet also in a kind of heroic defiance.”
