Eleonora Danco • 2014 • Italy
Well-respected Italian theatre artist Eleonora Danco returns to Terracina, the coastal town of her youth in search of lost memories.
Grappling with the unexpected passing of her mother 10 years prior, Danco interrogates Terracina's teenagers and elders on perennial subjects such as their first sexual experience, love, God, and death. Her father, however, proves the most cantankerous subject.
Blending farce with poetry, N-Capace crackles with both the wit of humor and genuine inquiry into the fabric of our nature. Eleonora's first film premiered at Lincoln Center's Open Roads New Italian Cinema Series, as well as Turin, where it won Best Actor and Best Film.
