The film festival will screen the late actor’s 2002 drama, One Hour Photo.

One Hour Photo

The Locarno Film Festival is to pay tribute to Robin Williams, the comedian and actor who died on Monday, with a screening of One Hour Photo on the Piazza Grande.

The psychological drama, directed by Mark Romanek, played in Locarno’s International Competition in 2002.

In the film, Williams gives a chilling performance as an employee of a one-hour photo lab who becomes obsessed with a young suburban family.

The amended line-up this evening is now:

  • 9.30pm: Pause, by Mathieu Urfer

followed by

  • One Hour Photo, Mark Romanek
  • Venus In Fur, Roman Polanski
