The festival is thrilled to welcome gorgeous rising European star Clara Ponsot as a guest of this year’s festival. Ponsot stars opposite Riccardo Scamarcio in COSIMO AND NICOLE, as the beautiful, impulsive Frenchwoman Nicole who embarks on a wildly passionate affair with Cosimo (Scamarcio) during the dramatic Genoa G8 riots. Ponsot has appeared in numerous French films, but this is her first Italian-language role.
Clara Ponsot will attend the Festival’s Opening Night Gala in Melbourne, along with COSIMO AND NICOLE Q&A events in Melbourne and Brisbane as follows:
Palace Cinema Como - Friday 4 October
6.45pm session of COSIMO AND NICOLE followed by Q&A.
Palace Barracks - Saturday 5 October
4.15pm session of COSIMO AND NICOLE followed by Q&A.
Palace Verona - Thursday 10 October
6.30pm session of COSIMO AND NICOLE, preceded by introduction by Clara Ponsot
Due to unforeseen circumstances Clara Ponsot's appearance in Sydney has been cancelled. The schedule session will still run, without her appearance. The festival apologises for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.
