SYNOPSIS

GRAZIE LINA is the unedited and personal account of 20 years of friendship and artistic collaboration between actor Yari Gugliucci and director Lina Wertmuller, who passed away on December 9, 2021. She was the first woman to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director in 1977, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Oscar in 2020. Actor Gugliucci remembers her with anecdotes and unseen archival material collected by the latter over the years.

“Lina,” said Gugliucci, “has always been a real, forthright and sincere woman, both in work and in friendship, she was the person who taught me that if you want to do something you have to do it because you feel it, not because someone tells you to or to achieve a goal, the alternative is not to do it. She was my antidepressant, I will thank her for the rest of my life, and this is my heartfelt and fitting tribute to her greatness.”

“We decided not to supplement the narrative with other interviews or third-party materials but to remain authentic to the story of a person who had the good fortune and privilege of knowing Lina Wertmuller as if she were one of the family, thus making a unique product of its kind”-producer Daniele Urciuolo continued.
