Gynocine Project: This is a video-essay that Marini-Maio created from her interview with filmmaker Alina Marazzi in New York City on March 17, 2018. The interview is presented in alternate editing with clips from Marazzi’s experimental non-fiction films Un’ora sola ti vorrei and Vogliamo anche le rose, and her stylistically hybrid theatrical feature Tutto parla di te. The goal of the video-essay is to unpack, in conversation with the filmmaker, the discourse of maternity that is constructed in the films’ narratives revolving around both historical and fictional mothers.
With Alina Marazzi. Written, produced, and directed by Nicoletta Marini-Maio; camera and sound by Costanza Maio; edited by Nicoletta Marini-Maio, Paola Bonifazio, and Costanza Maio.
