Trento Online

Sunday, 2 May 2010

Trento's mountain film festival is the oldest in the world and in recent years the organisers have made a strong effort to improve its international appeal. You can watch sneak previews of many of the films on offer at Trento, which is happening right now until 9 May, here. All the clips are either in English or subtitled, and there's a lot to see, including Irene Bignardi talking about Leni Riefenstahl, the appeal of Bruce Chatwin's The Songlines, clearly a more popular book in Italy now than in Britain and scenes from Julie Bridgham's film The Sari Soldiers, about women in Nepal's Maoist PLA. It's a fantatstic piece of outreach, brilliantly executed by planetmountain.com.
