Proiezione di Io Sono l'Amore
On Friday 20th May at 6.45 pm in the Griffith lecture theatre the following film will be screened:
I Am Love (2009)
The film, directed by Luca Guadagnino, follows a haute bourgeoisie family through changing times and fortunes, and its disruption by the force of passion. The cast is led by Tilda Swinton as Emma Recchi. Co-producers Swinton and Guadagnino developed the film together over an 11-year period.
The film premiered in the United States at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and premiered in both the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.
The title is taken from a line from the aria 'La Mamma Morta', which is explored in the film Philadelphia (starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington), a scene which Emma is watching while in bed with her husband, during the film. The film's soundtrack uses pre-existing compositions by John Adams.
