Venice, September 6, 2020. We conclude the first week of this 77th Venice International Film Festival by hosting two daughters of art at the Corradi Cinema Lounge.

The first is Gia Coppola, who with her grandfather Francis Ford behind her inevitably feels cinema running through her veins. In her film “Mainstream”, the director also wants to show herself as a daughter of her time and talks about the dictatorship of social networks, the cultural dimension of our time.

The second is Romola Garai, younger daughter of the philosopher Karl Marx in the film “Miss Marx”. In the role of Eleonor, born in London in 1855, she feels like a citizen of the world, too: in fact she is actively involved in contributing to the birth of trade unions and opposing child labor. Remembered as a skilled speaker, she is considered one of the first women to join feminist demands with socialist ones.
Also present at the lounge was director Susanna Nicchiarelli, who with her film competes for the prize Leone d’oro, along with four other Italian films.

To underline the presence of value of female figures, another director: Peter Marcias, director of "Nilde Lotti, the time of women", told us about the story of a great Italian woman of the twentieth century, who with her political passion and her great civic sense has motivated the female universe to be recognized for their own value and the rights that they are entitled to.

Our guest also Nick Vivarelli, a point of reference in world film criticism. Variety correspondent from Italy and the Middle East, this time he ventured behind the camera with “Life as a B-movie”, a documentary that will be broadcast tomorrow night on Sky Arte.

To end the day, we made a connection with Caetano Veloso, Brazilian singer-songwriter and guitarist who, despite his physical distance, wanted to make his contribution to the Venice festival from his homeland and talk about the film "Narciso Em Fèrias", which sees him as an interpreter of himself. In fact, the documentary traces the memories and reflections of the artist during his period of detention, arrested 50 years ago without receiving explanations from the dictatorial regime, and sheds light on the arbitrary brutality that characterized that chapter of Brazilian history.
