DIRECTOR: NANNI MORETTI
CAST: NANNI MORETTI, GIOVANNA BOZZOLO, JENNIFER BEALS
Introduced by and Q&A with Nanni Moretti, moderated by Nicolas Rapold, Editor in Chief of Film Comment.
A triptych film which deftly blends documentary and fiction while weaving across genre lines from segment to segment: A mortifying date at Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer; a chance meeting with Jennifer Beales (as herself), the object of his affection; a Sicilian-set rumination on the collapse of 1960s radicalism; an autobiographical recounting of Moretti’s own battle with cancer. Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, and instrumental in sealing Moretti’s reputation as one of the great tragicomic artists of the day,
combining experimental form with audience appeal.
Caro Diario is screening as part of the series Nanni Moretti.
