Italian director Marco Bellocchio will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 68th Venice International Film Festival (August 31 - September 10).
"With each new film, Marco Bellocchio leads you to yet another destination, different from those you thought you had already reached and discovered," said the Mostra’s artistic director Marco Müller, who went on to call the filmmaker "a tireless traveler – carrying and steering ideas, and exploring the shifting boundaries between himself, cinema and history".

The director of Fists in the Pocket has been on the Lido several times, winning the Special Jury Prize in 1967 for his second feature film, China is Near.
