KVIFF Distribution’s spring film to be Happy as Lazzaro
Published: February 06, 2019| 03:16 PM
After Sorrentino’s Loro, KVIFF Distribution is bringing another great Italian film to Czech cinemas. The original Happy as Lazzaro is the third feature film by director Alice Rohrwacher, an outstanding representative of the young generation of Italian filmmakers. Like her previous films, Happy as Lazzaro had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where Rohrwacher won the Best Screenwriting award for her script. Like Cannes, Rohrwacher’s films are also a regular feature at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, which is where Czech audiences had their first opportunity to see Happy as Lazzaro. On 14 March, this magical and touching film now comes to Czech cinemas thanks to a joint distribution effort by the Karlovy Vary IFF, Czech Television, and Aerofilms.
“With Happy as Lazzaro, KVIFF Distribution continues to present outstanding works of cinema characterized by a high level of artistic quality and with the potential to attract a broader audience through unusual and enchanting stories. In her films, Alice Rohrwacher creates worlds that viewer do not want to leave, just like when a reader hopes that an engrossing book will never end,” says Karel Och, artistic director of the Karlovy Vary IFF.
