Ermanno Olmi

Ermanno Olmi (Bergamo, Italy, 1931 - Asiago, Vicenza, Italy, 2018) made various documentaries about industrial production while working at Edison. In 1959, he shot his first feature film, Time Stood Still, and in 1963,  I fidanzati, which confirmed his interest in the world of ordinary people and daily life. In 1978, he won the Golden Palm in Cannes with The Tree of Wooden Clogs. After an illness forced him to stop working, he founded the school Ipotesi Cinema. After resuming his activity as a director, he won the Golden Globe and nine David di Donatello awards for The Profession of Arms.  In 2008, he received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. In 2014, on the one hundredth anniversary of the start of WWI, he directed Torneranno i prati, and in 2017, he made his final movie, Vedete, sono uno di voi.

“The true author of this program is our history, or rather, the present which returns through images of the past, the archive which remind us of the value of memory. Rather than being superimposed on us, these documents have made inroads inside us.”
