The Signs of Life Award to HAI SHANG CHENG SHI (The Fragile House)

 Locarno Festival’s Signs of Life Award ELECTRONIC-ART.FOUNDATION to the Best Film has been granted to HAI SHANG CHENG SHI (The Fragile House) by LIN Zi.


Signs of Life aims to explore new grounds, narrative forms and innovative cinematic languages. Originally out-of-competition when founded in 2014, Signs of Life is a competitive section since last year. This year’s jury is composed by Emilie Bujès, festival director (Switzerland), Tiziana Finzi, curator (Italy) and Josh Siegel, curator (USA).

The Signs of Life Award ELECTRONIC-ART.FOUNDATION to the Best Film 2018 is awarded to HAI SHANG CHENG SHI (The Fragile House) by LIN Zi, China.

The Signs of Life jury awarded LIN Zi film for “an unnerving portrait of one family’s estrangement and avarice within China’s burgeoning upper-middle class”.

The Fundación Casa Wabi – Mantarraya Award was given to director Benjamin Crotty for LE DISCOURS D’ACCEPTATION GLORIEUX DE NICHOLAS CHAUVIN, France “a film that plays with fact, legend — and fake news — in inventively madcap ways.”

The Signs of Life Award ELECTRONIC-ART.FOUNDATION worth CHF 5,000 was made possible thanks to the support of ELECTRONIC-ART.FOUNDATION (Zurich). The foundation’s mission is to sustain innovative cultural projects on an international scale.

The Fundación Casa Wabi and Mantarraya, in collaboration with the Festival Internacional de Cine de Morelia, have given support for the Fundación Casa Wabi – Mantarraya Award which consists of a residence at Casa Wabi – Puerto Escondido (Mexico) lasting between 1 to 1.5 months. Furthermore, Morelia International Film Festival will support up to USD 1,500 the international airfare costs.

The awarded films will be screened on Saturday August 11 at 10 am at the PalaVideo.

The awards will be presented tonight at the 9.30 pm Piazza Grande screening.
