Pippo Delbono bringing oeuvre to Locarno

'La Paura,' shot entirely on a cell phone, will premiere at fest

ROME -- Italian stage actor and director Pippo Delbono will be a special guest at August's Locarno Film Festival, presenting his entire filmography.

Screenings of his films will include the world premiere of the just-completed "La Paura" (The Fear), a full-length feature shot entirely on a cell phone.

The iconoclastic Delbono also will bring several older films that have never screened in public to the festival, which is set for Aug. 5-15.
