He told me that he’s never going to make regular feature films, only documentaries, and we should all be thankful for that. His latests, Fuocoammare (Fire at Sea) is the film that Italy has submitted to the Oscars, and it has a limited engagement in the USA right now.

Besides being amazingly talented, annoyingly gorgeous, and seriously innovative, these Italian actresses are humble, hardworking, and dedicated to the art of cinema. These girls don’t know the meaning of the word diva; they are role models and examples for women everywhere.
Check out Greta’s Suburra, Paola’s Gli Ultimi Saranno Ultimi, Margherita’s Mia Madre, Laura’s Questi Giorni, Blu’s Piuma, Marianna and Angela’s Indivisibili, Alba’s Vergine Giurata, Anna’s Anime Nere and Bianca’s Short Skin.
