Names such as Miguel Gomes, Pietro Marcello, Alice Rohrwacher, Matías Piñeiro, Eddie Alcazar and even a Panahi in Jafar Panahi’s son, Panah Panahi are some of the eye-brow raisers in Directors’ Fortnight topper Paolo Moretti selections for the 2021 line-up but some of the more anticipated items are Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir Part II, Clio Barnard’s Ali & Ava, Radu Muntean‘s Intregalde and Jonas Carpignano’s A Chiara.
