Normal, Dir. Adele Tulli, Italy 2019, 70 min., Italian with English subtitles


Through a series of wry and acerbic vignettes, Italian filmmaker Adele Tulli’s Normal playfully exposes the spectacle of gender in our everyday lives. Featuring quotidian scenes shot throughout Italy, the film observes individuals – from childhood to adulthood – navigating normative gendered behaviour. In exploring the relational choreographies we act out on a daily basis, Normal reveals how the conditioning expectations of gender shape our smallest actions – affecting our gestures, desires, behaviours and aspirations. Through intimate and at times satirical observations, Normal asks us to consider where our gendered performances end and our ‘real’ selves begin.

This is an ICA CINEMA Distribution project. The film is now available for theatrical bookings.
