Luna de València Award to Mia Hansen-Løve

Mia is one of the most outstanding young voices in French cinema of the 21st century. In her career a thematic nonconformism is distilled, because each film addresses a different plot from the previous one: from the hatching of disco music in the Paris of the nineties collected in ‘Eden’ (2014) to the life of a war journalist in India in ‘Maya’ (2018) and the visit of a couple of filmmakers to Ingmar Bergman’s refuge in ‘Bergman’s Island’ (2021). Despite this eclecticism, all of them share an intimate, nuanced and observational vision of certain vital dead spots that are still an accurate portrait of uncertainty and doubts.

Hansen-Løve has worked both with big stars, such as Isabelle Huppert in ‘The Future’, Tim Roth in ‘Bergman’s Island’ and Léa Seydoux in ‘One Fine Morning’, and with unknown actors. In his filmography he delves into intergenerational relationships, putting in dialogue life trajectories, which enriches the final discourse of his films.

From Cinema Jove, we will screen the entire filmography of the French filmmaker and we will count on her presence both at the opening gala of the festival, where she will receive the award for her entire career, and at the preview of ‘Bergman’s Island’ at the Filmoteca on June 23 and at a meeting with the press and the public.
