One of the festival's guests is the Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Love in Italian). His new film A Bigger Splash will be screened at the festival starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts and Ralph Fiennes.
As a director, screenwriter, producer and artistic entrepreneur, Guadagnino is a prolific creator with an appetite for creative expression. Born in Palermo, Italy, in 1971, but raised in Ethiopia, Guadagnino’s international vision was calibrated early. He graduated from Rome’s University La Sapienza, in the faculty of History and Critics of Cinema, with a thesis on American film director Jonathan Demme.
Known for Kärlek på italienska (2009), Melissa P. (2005) and The Protagonists (1999).
