As soon as he emerged as a filmmaker, in the late 1970s, in his sarcastic comedy auto-fictions, Nanni Moretti (born in 1953) broke the mold of Italian cinema. In the 1980s, Bianca, The Mass is Ended and above all Red Wood Pigeon installed the exuberant director, writer and actor at the top of his art, as a sort of successor to Pasolini.
In the 2000s, he turned to more popular films that earned him an almost permanent presence at the Cannes Film Festival, a Palme d’Or (The son’s room). And big public successes (We have a pope).
Faithful to his political commitments (he was a communist activist), Moretti recently recounted in the documentary Santiago, Pinochet's coup d'état in Chile in 1973 and its consequences in Italy.
We will show ten feature films by the Roman filmmaker. Before he presents Tre Piani, his new feature-length fiction film at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, the legendary director will honour us with a visit to present some of his films on Saturday, February 22.
