At the 75th Locarno Film Festival the Slovenian-Hungarian-Italian co-production short film Tako se je končalo poletje / That’s how the summer ended, directed by Matjaz Ivanisi, is included in the competition.
At the end of the summer, as preparations are underway for an air show in the sky, a man and a woman head to the riverbank to watch the legendary aerobatic pilot train, but that’s not the event of the day for them.
This is how the summer ended was co-produced by Staragara and Focusfox, and produced by András Muhi, Jozko Rutar, and Miha Cernec, with this film being the third the three men worked on together.
After Milky Way (2008, director: Benedek Fliegauf), I know (2008, director: Jan Cvtkovic), First Love (2008, dir: Ildikó Enyedi) and Infinite Minutes (2010, director: After Cecília Felméri), this is András Muhi’s fifth film to be screened at the Locarno Film Festival.
The film is directed by Matjaž Ivanišin, who was born in 1981 and graduated from the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television in Ljubljana, majoring in television and film directing. His films were screened at festivals in Marseille, Rotterdam, Locarno, and New York. He was invited to participate in film programmes at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, MoMA in New York, and ICA London.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Locarno Film Festival, which kicks off with Brad Pitt’s action comedy The Bullet Train on 3 August.
