On the occasion of the exhibition A Few Things I Cannot Leave Behind, the Centre is pleased to present a screening of the film I Diari di Angela – Noi Due Cineasti, directed by Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi, at Cinéma Spoutnik. This screening in the presence of Yervant Gianikian will be followed by a conversation between the artist, Jean Perret and Adelina von Fürstenberg, founder of the Centre.
I Diari di Angela – Noi Due Cineasti, directed by Yervant Gianikian, paints a poignant portrait of Angela Ricci Lucchi, her long-time partner and collaborator. Based on readings from Ricci Lucchi’s illustrated diaries, this documentary, selected out of competition at the 75th Venice Film Festival, incorporates the couple’s principles of political cinema. At the same time an intimate gesture, a living catalogue and a film work, I Diari di Angela evokes Gianikian and Ricci Lucchi through their radical artistic vision and their common love of life.
