The Golden Leopard goes to REGRA 34
The Brazilian film REGRA 34 by Julia Murat which had its world premiere in the international competition has been rewarded in Locarno with the Golden Leopard.
Giona A. Nazzaro, artistic director of Locarno Film Festival says: “This is an important Pardo d’oro for Brazilian cinema, a nation that has written milestone pages in the history of world cinema. This national cinema stands at the forefront of defending an idea of a more inclusive and free world. Regra 34 brings Brazilian cinema back to the anarchic glories of ‘cinema marginal’, a bold and political work that will surely leave behind an important legacy. The body is political.”
