The Oscar-nominated U.S. director will also be celebrated by the prominent Swiss fest with screenings of his latest film “Wonderstruck” and also his first feature “Poison,” which competed in Locarno in 1991.
Haynes is expected to make the trek to Locarno for the Aug. 7 tribute.
“In his seven feature films to date Todd Haynes has shaped out an original universe in which his familiarity with U.S. and European cinema, his passion for the films of Sirk and Fassbinder, go hand in glove with a modern sensibility,” Locarno artistic director Carlo Chatrian said in a statement.
