Director of the Aruba International Film Festival (AIFF), Claudio Masenza, explains why Bertolucci was chosen. "Bernardo Bertolucci is simply my favorite producer. He is a constant source of inspiration in my life, both as cineaste and friend. It is a great honor for me to begin my work with the Aruba Film Festival by acknowledging his work."
