I feel so happy that the Swedish Film Association (SFILM) has purchased the screening rights to the cinematic version of my installation about catcalling – “JUST LOOKING” – to broadcast it on their Vimeo channel!
It is going to be there for a limited time, hurry up if you want to see it at this link.
I am deeply grateful to the jury of the historic literary prize for female writers "Il Paese delle Donne" who have – in their twenty-fourth edition – awarded my novel "Michelina Di Cesare, briganta" published by Lorusso Editore with an Honorable Mentionin the Fiction section. It is a prestigious recognition that honors me and makes me happy because it helps to spread the story of this special woman. Thank you to "Il Paese delle donne"!
Please rejoice with me: my feature film project extracted from my novel about bandit Michelina Di Cesare was ranked FIRST among the 226 submitted so it is granted a fund of 20,000 Euro for the writing of the screenplay!
I am honored and moved with the recognition this story receives and I am hopeful the right producers will make me shoot the film once the screenplay is completed!
So nice for me to be invited to participate to the first book fair in the town of Skepplanda, organized by Bibliotekets vänner i norra Ale! I got to read one of my stories to a very attentive audience, and I am glad the provincial paper Alekuriren chose to pick a photo with me for their coverage!
The Wedding Cake was selected by the lovely Fantaspoa Film Festival of Porto Alegre (BR) in 2021. Unfortunately, the festival could only be held online back then, but luckily – during the coming Noite dos Museus (“Night of Museums”) that will take place on May 20th – “The Wedding Cake” will be exhibited at “Cinemateca Capitólio”, apparently the most beautiful movie theater in Porto Alegre! I am extremely glad that my short will be screened again in a real cinema in front of a flesh and blood audience!
My VR360 short film “Gang Dance” ready for viewing in Lisbon as part of the Festa do Cinema Italiano from April 1 to 3 in staging at Cinema São Jorge! I am excited about this screening (details are here), and moved by the words of presentation written by the festival organizers: “A colossal project, premiered in Milan at the Filmmaker Festival. A dance performance that engages and oppresses, denying any form of escape. A symbolic journey into the universe of social networks, reflecting on the abuse of bodies and images, between exposure and sharing.”
I am really thrilled I will be reading some of my poems in both Swedish and Italian at the Frölunda Kulturhus! On March 21st it is the World Poetry Day and I got an invitation to read at the Kafé Kultans poesiscen during the Poetry & Music event, starting at 6pm.
You are most welcome to join me!
I am very happy that the fantastic women of the Sister’s Wild Cinema have asked me to screen The Wedding Cake during a film event organized for the Equal Pay Day, tonight at 6:30 p.m. at M25, Münsterplatz 25, in Ulm, in collaboration with the Women’s Office of the City of Ulm and the Neu-Ulm District Equal Opportunity Office.
My VR360 short film “Gang Dance” keeps on rolling, this time for its Portuguese premiere! In fact, it has been selected for the prestigious Lusitanian festival wholly dedicated to Italian cinema that after seven days of performances in Lisbon then moves to all the most important Portuguese cities. The Festa do Cinema Italiano – now in its sixteenth edition – will start on March 29 in Lisbon and continue until April 6.
I am really happy with this selection, for me and for my whole team, especially my right-hand man Mikael Moiner, who magnificently took care of all the technical and visual part of the short film!
