On September 28 and 29, Helen Mirren was an unexpected guest at the Bari International Film Festival and an even more unexpected winner of the festival’s Federico Fellini Platinum Award, alongside her husband Taylor Hackford. While the director Paolo Virzì was delivering the awards, Checco Zalone entered the stge to Helen’s and everyone’s surprise, joking “I am delighted to have given you the opportunity to work with me. An award for the authentic love that Helen has for our land“. He later came to the rescue when Mirren’s heel got stuck in the stage, much to her husband’s amusement. Edit: More pictures from the awards ceremony and the master class conversation panel have been added to the photo gallery, alongside video clips from both appearances.
