“I love coming to this festival in Rome because, when I’m walking around the city, I feel like I’m living in a dream and not in reality, and I finally feel like the protagonists of my films”. Today at the Rome Festival is the big day of Tim Burton who, crossing the red carpet of the Auditorium, thus responds to the journalists crowded behind the barriers.
“I’m here with my whole family – added the most dreamlike and visionary director on the world scene – I feel a bit like at my funeral. There is also my dog, Levi”, he joked. The director is in Rome to receive the Rome Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be given to him before his Close Encounter with the public, one of the most anticipated ever of the Capitoline event.
