The filmography of Alice Rohrwacher (Fiesole, Italy, 1981) is deeply marked by the origins, history and atavistic strength of Tuscany. In each film that she has written and directed she has gone further in the search for an unclassifiable style that she draws from Italian masters such as Fellini, Rossellini, De Sica or Pasolini. Rather than being part of the literary category of “magical realism”, Rohrwacher writes and films with the commitment and freedom that its humanism endows her with. Her camera, in the hands of Hélène Louvart, her favorite cinematographer, moves with the spell of Super 16 mm celluloid and with a freedom of movement always anchored in human dignity. Alice Rohrwacher’s cinema believes in the transmuting power of the image, in the cracks of a moral system in ruins that, as in her last feature film, can only be saved by even more distant ruins. In the perseverance, immortal, of innocence. These are the virtues and commitment that the festival has the immense honor of rewarding. The first D’A Award went to French filmmaker Céline Sciamma; Alice Rohrwacher will collect the second honorary prize awarded by the festival in the framework of a dialogue lead by the film critic Manu Yáñez.
