With them, in front of a full audience, the mayor of Taormina, doc. Mauro Passalacqua, editor in chief, Mario Sesti and general manager Tiziana Rocca. “It’s an all new festival – opened the mayour of Taormina, Passalacqua – it started with style and in a very good manner. In the cinema, where everyone talks bad of everyone, I couldn’t explain why everyone was talking such good of Mario Sesti. The two last month – goes on Passalcqua – we had the occasion to meet better and I understood. He’s a great man. And also thanks to Sesti the Taormina Film Fest will go once again on the scenes of the world and, even if it was organized just in those two latest months, we’re sure that it will at least be at second place in the italian cinematographic press.

The Conference is taking place now and we’ve got HQs of Lisa at it. Marvellous.

With angular features and a broad, engrossing smile that, in the series that has brought her the most fame, House M.D., is flashed with exasperating parsimony, Lisa Edelstein is one of the most interesting actors of the new American serial. From her beginnings as a stage actress, she had a brief film career before becoming solidly planted on the small screen, having appeared in two of the most successful procedurals of recent years. Before House’s hospital, the law offices of Ally McBeal offered her the setting in which to incarnate a complex and very physical character, a transsexual. Television found in her an actress with a marked expressivity in reaction shots, which has allowed her over the years to make a deep impression even in smaller roles, used as she is to shaping a highly nuanced character and offering a variety of different takes on the same verbal clash. Perfectly suited for work that requires discipline and continuity, she is able to create a memorable character that may appear in only one episode of a long-running show, or sustain a character for years, continuing to layer her with nuances season upon season. The Taormina Film Fest presents Lisa Edelstein with the Cubovision Prize for her ability to inhabit various media, ultimately focusing on the most important and innovative one in modernity.
Taormina is beautiful. There’s just something about this place…
