Leonara Addio (Taviani, 2022): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 5.50pm

This film is part of the Taviani Brothers season and also screens on March 9th. Full details here.

BFI introduction:
Paolo Taviani‘s first film following the death of his brother in 2018 (and his first solo feature as a writer-director) proved to be a beguiling and beautiful elegy for Vittorio. It’s a celebration of post-war Italian cinema and a return to the fertile stories of Luigi Pirandello, including the bizarre saga of the burial of the author’s ashes.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
