The 35th edition of the Italian festival will feature the American director's full catalog.

The Turin Film Festival will host the first full Brian de Palma Retrospective in Italy at its upcoming festival. Curated by festival director Emanuela Martini, the retrospective will feature not just the complete feature films of De Palma, but also his short films, documentaries and video clips.

De Palma, born in New Jersey to parents of Apulian origins, is known for a number of iconic films, including Carrie (1976), Dressed to Kill (1980), Scarface (1983), The Untouchables (1987), Carlito’s Way (1993), Mission: Impossible (1996) among many others.

He has been honored with a Berlin Silver Bear for Greetings (1968), a Venice Silver Lion for Redacted (2007) and the Venice Glory to the Filmmaker Award in 2015.

De Palma recently wrapped shooting in Sardinia for his latest crime thriller, Domino, which stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Carice van Houten and Guy Pearce. Domino, which features Coster-Waldau as a rogue cop tracking down the killer who murdered his partner, is a co-production between Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Holland and Italy.

The 35th Turin Film Festival will take place Nov. 24-Dec. 2.
