Under the God (part 1)
Switzerland · 2019 · DCP · Color · 87′ · o.v. Italian
During the workshop Mountains – Loneliness – Desire, held in Locarno last April, Béla Tarr picked fifteen filmmakers from around the world for a residency lasting around ten days in which to make a short feature. The result was the collective film Under the God, comprising the very different gazes of the young directors, who chose a variety of styles and formats: drama, thriller, documentary, even abstract parable. A re-interpretation of spaces in and around Locarno (city, cable car, Val Bavona, Corippo), seen from the perspectives of fifteen auteurs of the future.
