Taormina Film Festival will be celebrating the powerful collaboration between Willem Dafoe and Abel Ferrara, two icons of independent cinema.
With a career spanning decades, these two artists have worked together to create some of the most impactful and memorable films of our time. From the hauntingly poetic “4:44 Last Day on Earth” to the beauty of “Pasolini,” Dafoe and Ferrara’s partnership has brought us some of the most uncompromising and thought-provoking films in recent history.
We will be hosting two masterclasses within the Festival – one with Abel Ferrara on June 27th, and another with both Ferrara and Willem Dafoe on July 1st.
We also invite you to join us for a series of seven screenings throughout the week as we explore some of the incredible body of work that the pair have created together. The films, detailed below, will be shown in Palazzo dei Congressi and Casa del Cinema.
