The La Rochelle festival is a love story between a city at the beginning of summer, a curious and enthusiastic audience and films from all over the world. This very special 48th edition, which will be held online, will not fail to present to the public a rich program: in particular, we recommend the retrospective dedicated to Roberto Rossellini, with a selection of restorations realised by L’Immagine Ritrovata.

We are also glad to annouce that the Director of the Cineteca di Bologna, Gian Luca Farinelli, will present the film “The Passion of Anna Magnani” by Enrico Cerasuolo, a title scheduled for this year’s edition. Here the film’s notes.
