The bi-monthly film club returns for its first double bill of 2021 with Corpo Celeste and the short Stabat Mater.
One of the most remarkable yet discreet debuts of the last decade, Corpo Celeste announced a major talent in director Alice Rohrwacher, whose signature blend of earthy realism and cosmic mystery arrived seemingly fully formed. Shot on Super 16mm with handheld immediacy by the great Hélène Louvart, Rohrwacher’s film chronicles the physical and spiritual awakening of Marta (Yle Vianello), a soon-to-be 13-year-old girl who has recently relocated with her overworked mother and rather odious older sister from Switzerland to Reggio Calabria on Italy’s southern coast.
Drawing from French feminist theory and her Mediterranean Catholic upbringing, Nina Danino's Stabat Mater investigates female subjectivity and desire, with particular attention to the voice.
