Masters of Cinema Award to Liv Ullmann

On Tuesday the 25th of July, the Misericòrdia will host a special gala at which the Masters of Cinema Award will be presented to a living legend of cinema, the actress Liv Ullmann.

In addition to receiving the award, Ullmann will present the documentary ‘Liv Ullmann: the road less travelled’, directed by Dheerai Akolkar.

The Norwegian actress will not be the only special award this year. On 29 and 30 July, the Masters of Cinema will be awarded to the César-winning French actress Irène Jacob for ‘Three Colours: Red’.

The awards will be followed by the screening of ‘Creatura’, winner of the Best European Film Award in the Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.
