Charlotte Rampling

Legendary actress Charlotte Rampling will receive the festival's excellence award at the opening night of this year's festival on August 1st. 

Here's what festival Artistic Director Olivier Père said about why they picked Rampling:

I’m delighted to welcome to Locarno Charlotte Rampling, an enigmatic and fascinating actress whose unique magnetism and beauty have graced several landmarks in contemporary cinema. From Visconti to Lars von Trier, from Woody Allen to François Ozon, from Liliana Cavani to Nagisa Oshima, Charlotte Rampling, by turns deadly or vulnerable, has fascinated several major filmmakers, and millions of viewers besides.

The festival will also screen Rampling's new film I, Anna, directed by her son Barnaby Southcombe as well as Liliana Cavani’s The Night Porter and Francois Ozon’s Under the Sand.  If you want to learn more about Rampling you should see Angelina Maccarone's documentary on her The Look.

The Locarno Film Festival runs from August 1-11.
