Italy, 2019, 64 mins.
DIRECTOR: Raffaele Rago, Daniela Masciale
Six secretaries reminisce about their lives working
alongside powerful and enlightened men, lovers of
great cinema, producers, directors and managers
who made Italian cinema history. Recollections
of their lives, off and on-set, are enriched by
anecdotes, revelations, unpublished photographs
and other curiosities related to some of the great
Italian classics. These women still exude the same
passion and determination as when they began
their adventures into the world of cinema, where
the word ‘impossible’ doesn’t exist, working in busy
and lively offices where the careers of directors,
screenwriters, actors and actresses would be made.
We are delighted to welcome Directors Raffaele
Rago & Daniela Masciale for a Q&A after the film.
