On the closing night of the festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre, presented its iconic Reverso watch, engraved to commemorate the occasion, to filmmaker Lav Diaz, winner of the Golden Lion for his movie The Woman who Left, to Emma Stone, winning the best actress Coppa Volpi for her performance in La La Land and Oscar Martinez winner of the best actor Coppa Volpi for his performance in the movie The Distinguished Citizen.
In 2016, the year that marks the 11th anniversary of its presence at the Mostra, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created a special design that turns each watch into a memorable object creating an emotional link with the person who wears it.
Each Reverso watch bears the inscription “73. Mostra” and is adorned with a red lacquered engraving depicting a lion, the symbol of Venice.
The Golden Lion Award went to The Woman who Left directed by Filipino Filmmaker Lav Diaz.
His 19th film, a black-and-white revenge thriller, focuses on the struggle of a schoolteacher to reintegrate into society after 30 years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit.
