Prize of the Ecumenical Jury Locarno 2017

An hommage to Harry Dean Stanton, one of our greatest character actors, «Lucky» winsomely explores the meaning of life, given the immanence of death. Directed by an accomplished actor and starring David Lynch in a memorable supporting role, the movie is set in a small desert town. Played by the 91-year-old Stanton, Lucky, though angry, fearful and alone, comes to accept the love of others and finally to find in his life an underlying spirituality.
