Sempre con sguardo obliquo sul programma - con rotta tematica, attraverso le sezioni - proponiamo in questa News tre titoli dal programma del Cinema Ritrovato che affrontano la "questione tedesca". Un argomento storicizzato ma profondamente attuale, riletto attraverso lavori provenienti da diversi Paesi, quindi capaci di offrire prospettive di lettura diverse: Lights Out in Europe di Kline Herbert (USA/1940), Ma vie en Allemagne au temps d'Hitler di Jérome Prieur (Francia/2018), dalla sezione "Documenti e documentari", e None Shall Escape di André De Toth (USA/1940), dalla sezione "Censurati, ritrovati e restaurati".
Che rapporto ha con la Cineteca di Bologna e col festival del Cinema Ritrovato? "Del festival di Bologna mi attrae la sua reputazione: ama la storia del cinema e rende onore al lavoro del restauro. Per noi il fatto di avere questi due film selezionati [Tucker di Coppola e Mishima di Schrader] per il festival è un grande onore. È un bellissimo punto di partenza per la riscoperta del mondo di questi due piccoli capolavori".

IL CINEMA RITROVATO 2017: FISHING FOR GOD
by Tara Judah (Desistfilm)
The most memorable movies aren’t always the best, but there’s something about an earnest stinker that can make the heart swell. Featured in the festival’s Universal Pictures: the Laemmle Junior Years strand, Tay Garnett’s Destination Unknown (1933) is this year’s knock-out rediscovery.
IL CINEMA RITROVATO 2017: IN FAVOUR OF EXPERIENCE
by Tara Judah (Desistfilm)
Meanwhile, in Bologna, at the 31st edition of Il Cinema Ritrovato, something else is taking shape. The festival brings both popular titles and niche cinema out of the archives from far corners of the globe and back onto big screens, but it doesn’t pander to a culture of FOMO – there are few ‘new’ films to see here. It’s not that everything is shown with on equal footing – some screens are bigger than others (and some auditoriums better air-conditioned, too) – but the hierarchy is such that even the lesser known titles are given plenty of space and hoards of respect. Because, as festival director Gian Luca Farinelli writes, ‘Il Cinema Ritrovato is a solid festival with a program that focuses on transmitting the beauty and uniqueness of cinema as a cultural experience…”

Immense scale and teeming activity are nothing new to Il Cinema Ritrovato, the Cineteca di Bologna’s annual jamboree of restored and rediscovered films from all over the world. The scorching heat–90 degrees and more for the first few days–only makes it seem more intense than usual. Kristin and I had to miss the last Ritrovato session, but we’re convinced that this nine days’ wonder is still the film-history equivalent of Cannes.
