Helmed by Italian film and theater director Riccardo Vannuccini, the feature is intended as an homage to renowned Italian filmmaker Marco Ferreri.
Set as a “film within a film,” Vannuccini also stars in the feature, playing a director called Rocco Cucovaz who unsuccessfully directs Bellamacina in a variety of scenes, with each one descending into chaos until the female actors eventually take over the production.
Manolo Cinti (“Così parlò De Crescenzo”) is the director of cinematography while Thai fashion designer Pim Sukhahuta will design the costumes.
The film is produced by Cane Pezzato. Principle photography commences in Rome on Nov. 2.
Bellamacina is an actor, writer and director. She will soon be seen in Sky Atlantic’s “This Sceptred Isle,” Michael Winterbottom’s series about the Boris Johnson administration in
