After the success at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris, ICONS, the exhibition dedicated to Gus Van Sant’s career curated by Matthieu Orléan lands in Turin today.

The spaces of the Cinema Museum of the Italian city will host unpublished short films, original polaroids, paintings, preparatory drawings for feature films, behind the scenes videos and editings with the most celebrated sequences of his films, in a multidisciplinary itinerary aimed at exploring the complexity of the American filmmaker’s work.

Gus Van Sant, among the most interesting directors of the American independent scenecombines existential and unconventional themes to an impeccable photography, although his productions are often low-cost.
