LUI E IO

HIM AND I
by Giulia Cosentino
Country: Italy
Year: 2019
Duration: 13'


Lui e io is the reflection of a woman in her role as wife and mother lived between imposition and choice. Through the filming of her husband who portrays her, she reveals herself in opposition to his world, a militant always far from home. A reworking of female staff as a political act to tell that love is an act of acceptance of differences and that personal memories are part of the collective history.

Declaration

film director

“Telling the story of a woman, a possible reading of it starting from the material shot by a single filmmaker, is born from the desire to rewrite a subordinate history, to immerse it in new meanings. Dialectical experimentation is carried out by combining different archival materials, sounds is made up of magnetic tapes from my family, recorded in a different historical period than the images and political speeches used. In the same way the reference texts (Lui e io by Natalia Ginzburg and I lumi e il cerchio by Emma Baeri) belong to two different moments of the 20th century.”
