La 61ma Viennale scalda i motori
Una spiegazione per tutto di Gábor Reisz

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

The 61st Viennale, scheduled to unspool from 19-31 October, has announced a rather ambitious line-up of discoveries, major festival hits from the past season and general crowd-pleasers. “It's a festival for the city,” artistic director Eva Sangiorgi remarked on the local impact of the gathering. “A festival is a ritual and also attracts people who can’t find the time to go to the cinema during the year.”

Drawing in the masses while also reflecting on the challenges and hardships of our times is already the mission of the opening movie, Explanation for Everything [+leggi anche:

by Gábor Reisz. It starts with a failed school exam and, throughout the story, extends its gaze to a reflection on Hungary under Viktor Orban. It is the third feature for Reisz, who made quite a splash with it in this year's Orizzonti competition at Venice.

The retrospective this year is dedicated to Raúl Ruiz, whose extensive body of work is still relatively little known. Born in Chile in 1941, he went into exile in France after the 1973 coup. Up until his death in 2011, he was considered a rather elitist figure on the fringes of the European and Latin American film industries. The retrospective is a prominent piece in this year’s broader focus on Chilean cinema. Indeed, 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of General Pinochet's coup. The related “Kinematografie” section will showcase films by renowned Chilean personalities and lesser-known works by well-known filmmakers.

The second “Kinematografie” is dedicated to Austrian cinema of the 1980s, while there will be a “Historiografie” devoted to US author James Baldwin, and another to Peace Corps member and director David Schickele. Nicolas Klotz and Elisabeth Perceval constitute the focus of the first “Monografie”, with the second one hinging on Narcisa Hirsch. The industry section will include talks from Alba Rohrwacher and Radu Jude, while French actress Catherine Deneuve will drop by as the special guest on 26 October.

For the traditional closing gala on 31 October, the festival has picked something lighter and more entertaining. The closing film will thus be Quentin Dupieux's surreal comedy Yannick [+leggi anche:

After not being used for the past few editions, the Kunsthalle will also make a comeback as the Viennale’s headquarters, and will be offering discussions, special events and musical festivities – amongst them Lars Eidinger serving as a DJ once again on 21 October.
