CORPO CELESTE d. Alice Rohrwacher, 2011 + Short: STABAT MATER d. Nina Danino, 1990 presented by The Machine That Kills Bad People at ICA (29 SEP 18:45).

  • “One of the most remarkable yet discreet debuts of the last decade, CORPO CELESTE announced a major talent in director Alice Rohrwacher, whose signature blend of earthy realism and cosmic mystery arrived seemingly fully formed. Shot on Super 16mm with handheld immediacy by the great Hélène Louvart, Rohrwacher’s film chronicles the physical and spiritual awakening of Marta (Yle Vianello), a soon-to-be 13-year-old girl who has recently relocated with her overworked mother and rather odious older sister from Switzerland to Reggio Calabria on Italy’s southern coast.” – Andréa Picard
