Event description

Description

18TH ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK IN THE WORLD

Under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic

Filmed between Italy and the United States, Ferrante Fever is born from the same passion that devours the readers of Elena Ferrante. But the film doesn’t necessarily go in search of the identity of the “faceless writer,” whose novels have sold more than five million copies worldwide. The film is not looking to uncover the truth behind the pseudonym. Instead, it hopes to discover the secret to her success, the nature of the fever that conquered the world over the course of 12 years.

Exceptional witnesses (Hillary Clinton, Roberto Saviano, Lisa Lucas) provide answers, but so do the writer's own words, and the places and the protagonists in her novels.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring movie director Giacomo Durzi and Ann Goldstein, the American translator of Ferrante’s novels, moderated by Laura Benedetti, professor of Italian at Georgetown University.

Director: Giacomo Durzi
Italy/United States, 2017, 50 min
