The Notes of Anna Azzori / A Mirror that Travels through Time

Constanze RUHM
Germany, France, Austria 2020 72min DCP color/b&w Experimental G Asian Premiere
Overview

This film refers to the Italian underground film Anna (1972-75) by Alberto Grifi and Massimo Sarchielli, which documents a few months in the life of a young homeless and pregnant woman who encounters the directors in 1972 in Piazza Navona, Rome. Grifi and Sarchielli offer to help her; in return, they render Anna the subject of a project between documentation and (re)-staging, between empathy, detached observation, and exploitation. The film uses unreleased image and sound materials from Alberto Grifi’s archives and is dedicated to its heroine.

Review

Constanze Ruhm attempts to bring back the characters of the forgotten film Anna (1975, Alberto Grifi, Massimo Sarchielli) to the present day. Many women auditioned for the lead role of Anna and that process was made into an essay film. The director gives life to the forgotten character from the auditions that consist of interviews, performances, and photography. Ruhm also restores the women’s dignity which were sometimes undervalued or excluded in film history. Thanks to the existence of these films, which convey radical form and content, we can refer to the past and talk about the present where the importance of women is restored. (Sung MOON)

* This film is one of the selections of the JEONJU IFF 2020, which couldn’t be screened last year due to the unpredictable situation relating to COVID-19.
