Ed Lachman is the President of the Jury at the 34th Torino Film Festival. To his work as cinematographer we owe the poetic realism of masterpieces like the greatest film directed by Todd Haynes: Far Away from Heaven, I’m not there, the miniseries Mildred Pierce and the melò Carol. Lachman defines the elements and aspects he looks for while watching a film and in Turin while judging it and reveals who are the colleague cinematographers that he appreciates the most: Luca Bigazzi ( in his partnership with Sorrentino), Vittorio Storaro, Dick Pope, the 2016 Gran Premio Torino Christopher Doyle and last but not least Gianni Di Venanzo, considered the father of italian cinematography.
