Locarno Film Festival To Honor French Actress Bulle Ogier With A Career Golden Leopard

The Locarno Film Festival will pay tribute with a career Golden Leopard to French actress Bulle Ogier, known for appearing in almost all of Jacques Rivette’s films after starring in his 1968 classic “L’Amour Fou.”

The choice of Ogier — who has also worked with other major European directors including Claude Lelouch, Louis Bunuel, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Claude Chabrol, Daniel Schmid, and Manoel de Oliveira, as well as her husband Barbet Schroeder — represents a continuation of the Swiss fest’s revisitation of the legacy of the French Nouvelle Vague.

Jean-Pierre Leaud, who played the lead in Francois Truffaut’s “The 400 Blows,” was honored by Locarno last year.

Ogier broke out internationally in 1971 thanks to her performance as Rosemonde in Alain Tanner’s “La Salamandre.”

Locarno’s tribute to Bulle Ogier will be accompanied by a selection of films she has appeared in and also by an onstage “In Conversation” session with the fest’s audience.

The 68th edition of Locarno, which is dedicated to indie and innovative cinema, will run August 5-15.
