“I don't see my movies.
I think it's healthier and safer to keep a bit of distance.
I'm afraid to be disappointed”.
Bernardo Bertolucci

Cinema Italian Style Award goes this year to Bernardo Bertolucci, one of the most loved living masters of contemporary International cinema.

Oscar® winner, President of Venezia 2013 Festival Jury, Bertolucci is since last year being protagonist of the first complete retrospective of his cinema all around the world, with 20 films remastered by Luce Cinecittà with sound and color correction overseen by several of the cinematographers who have worked with the director (Vittorio Storaro, Darius Khondji, and Fabio Cianchetti), and include such notable classics as Ultimo tango a Parigi (Last Tango in Paris) (1972), starring Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider; Novecento (1900) (1976) with Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, and Donald Sutherland; Little Buddha (1993) with Keanu Reeves and Bridget Fonda; and Io ballo da sola (Stealing Beauty) (1996), with Liv Tyler, Sinéad Cusack, and Jeremy Irons.

Bertolucci has worked with many artists, including cinematographer Vittorio Storaro; writers Franco “Kim” Arcalli and Mark Peploe; composers Georges Delerue, Ennio Morricone, and Alessio Vlad; production and costume designers Ferdinando Scarfiotti, Gitt Magrini, and Metka Kosak; producers Giovanni Bertolucci, Alberto Grimaldi, and Jeremy Thomas, who have put their distinctive mark on the style and content of their collaborations.

The same holds true for many of cinema’s leading actors whose bold, indelible performances have graced Bertolucci’s films throughout his career.

To honor one of the pre-eminent international directors of the twentieth century, Luce Cinecittà and the AFI Film Festival will present the US premiere of the nine-time Oscar® winning The last emperor in 3D (November 10th at AFI FEST 2013), restored by Recorded Picture Company and Repremiere Group.

On the 12th of November, Bertolucci will revisit his career in a special Master Class at U.C.L.A., coordinated by Lorenzo Soria. Before this event, his latest film Me and You will be screened.
