Kiro Russo is one of the most important and young voices in independent cinema. Through his films he chronicles Bolivia, the Southern Cone, and the mining and nontropical Latin America. He creates works that blend fiction and documentary with extreme and delicate poetry, assembling tales and realities that populate the highest peaks of the Andes.
His second feature film, “The Great Movement,” screened in the Orizzonti section at the last Venice Film Festival, won the Grand Jury Prize, officially decreeing him among this year’s outstanding filmmakers. Lago Film Fest wants to explore his world before he became a world-renowned filmmaker, and will screen all of his short films, which were or still are a crucial exercise for the director to be able to make his feature films. In addition to the films that have been released, exclusively for Lago Film Fest, a world premiere of a never-before-seen film, which is very precious to the director.
