Workshop with Marcello Fonte

Mateo Garrone’s film Dogman (2018) was shown as part of the Contemporary trends on the fourth day of the Festival. Marcello Fonte, the star of Garrone’s film and winner of the Golden Palm for Best Actor at last year’s Cannes Film Festival talked with the audience after the screening. Fonte told the audience more about how he started out and shared stories about his extraordinary life. Despite the Best Actor Award in Cannes, he still squats in a cinema in Rome where he and his friends host plays and exhibitions. A dedicated non-conformist, Fonte highlighted two points during the talk: never trust institutions and never leave anything for tomorrow – live now
