I’m Sidney Poitier e Paul Newman the protagonists of the official image of the Rome Film Fest 2020, the Roman event now in its fifteenth edition.
The photo that portrays them was taken during the filming of Paris Blues, film directed by Martin Ritt in 1961 and nominated for an Oscar for Best Score by Duke Ellington, and represents a tribute to two icons of the history of cinema. “The sense of complicity, the joy of being together, the sharing of experiences, the value of human and artistic collaboration are the beat of the 2020 Film Festival,” explains the official statement.
“I strongly wanted this image for the fifteenth edition – he said Antonio Monda, artistic director of the Festival – It is a photo that celebrates the glamor of great cinema, the idea of a party that I have tried to communicate since the first edition that I had the privilege of directing and, never as in this period, the sense of communion and interracial love “.
