The last film in Open Air programme of 26th Sarajevo Film Festival is PINNOCCHIO, by award-winning Italian director Matteo Garrone. PINNOCHIO had its world premiere at this year’s Berlinale.
You can watch the film at ondemand.sff.ba, where it will be available for the next seven days.
A faithful adaptation of the famous story of the wooden puppet that is brought to life at the behest of a poor, lonely woodcarver. Like any child, Pinocchio is curious about the world and learns by trial and error. Matteo Garrone bestows Pinocchio’s world with a visionary dimension that, like the book, has a broad sweep. His Pinocchio moves in a realm that is simultaneously real and fantastic; this is a rural, timeless and yet unmistakable Italy that is redolent of the earth, the sea and the farmyard. Viewers will certainly find their favourite among the characters Pinocchio encounters on his journey, who bring him face-to-face with nature, the animal kingdom and the world of the imagination.
