After a 13-year absence, French helmer Leos Carax returned to the Cannes competition in May with his well-received Holy Motors. Indomina then acquired the film for the US. It stars Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue. Now, Carax is being honored at Locarno. The Pardo d’Onore award has gone to “a master of contemporary cinema” for the past 24 years. Marking the honor, the festival will screen Carax’s repertoire of five features that includes Holy Motors, 1984’s Boy Meets Girl, 1986’s Bad Blood, 1991’s The Lovers On The Bridge and 1999’s Pola X. Portmanteau work, Tokyo!, to which Carax contributed a segment, will also run. Previous Pardo d’Onore recipients include Bernardo Bertolucci, Ken Loach, Jean-Luc Godard, Abbas Kiarostami, Aleksandr Sokurov, Hou Hsiao-hsien, William Friedkin and Abel Ferrara. The 65th edition of the Locarno Film Festival runs from Aug 1-11.
