Built around a powerhouse, multi-award-winning central performance by Jasmine Trinca (The Best of Youth), Fortunata is the latest collaboration between writer-director husband and wife team Margaret Mazzantini and Sergio Castellito. Trinca plays a straight-talking single mother who plans to open her own hair salon in Rome. Both Trinca and Castellito have spoken of Anna Magnani’s character in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Mamma Roma as a key influence and the film also features a memorable performance from Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s muse Hanna Schygulla.

The Italian Film Festival is programmed by Dr Pasquale Iannone, in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute and Filmhouse.
