127 films, a single planet: the film programme of the 67th Trento Film Festival celebrates the mountains and the elements
From documentaries and feature films to restored classics and contemporary experimentation, from international to local cinema, the 2019 selection recounts the mountains as sensitive tips of the icebergs of planet Earth, in a year seeing an awakening awareness of younger generations as regards global warming and environmental risks.
Contemporary Languages: from Reinhold Messner to Luca Barbarossa, from philosophy to bicycles and from the Dolomites to the Himalayas. Eight evenings, with eight events not to be missed.
The evening events at Trento Film Festival cover subjects ranging from ecology, mountaineering and adventure to music and philosophy, with many themes but a single language: the contemporary world.
The spectacular biography “Amundsen” directed by Espen Sandberg will be the opening film of the 67th edition. The international star Pål Sverre Hagen is cast in the role of the legendary and controversial Norwegian explorer, who dedicated his whole life to discovering new lands, sacrificing everything to achieve his dreams.
