Sep 07, 2009
An active supporter of the 66th Venice Film Festival, the Swiss watch manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre renders a financial assistance to creators of an in-depth documentary film, entitled "Negli Occhi".

The latter describes the life of the late Italian actor Vittorio Mezzogiorno, an outstanding personality, who accomplished much both in theater and film in the 1970s and 1980s.

Directed by Danielle Anzellotti and Francesco De Grossi, the documentary reveals interviews with Mezzogiorno’s colleagues and friends. Vittorio’s daughter, the film’s co-producer, is the one who tells the actor’s life story.

The film "Negli Occhi" was presented within the framework of the 2009 Venice Film Festival, which started on September 6th and is be over on September 12th. This documentary, shown on September 6th, was competing in the Contracampo Italiano category.

2009 is marked with a five-year partnership between the horological company Jaeger-LeCoultre and the Mostra. To celebrate this union’s anniversary and to emphasize the importance of supporting art in films, the renowned Swiss watch-maker presents its own showing in the course of the event. On September 8th, the company arranges a special evening, where guests will be offered a chance to admire some exclusive watches with two unique Jaeger-LeCoultre re-edition models among them.

A key focal point of this evening will be the Jaeger-Lecoultre Calibre 101 movement, an extraordinary manual winding mechanism, which has attained its legendary status due to its size, which happens to be the tiniest in the world. For more than 70 years it allows the watch-making house to produce extremely graceful and refined watches for women.
