A midweek highlight of this year’s Los Angeles Italia film festival: Writer-director GinevraElkann, actor Alba Rohrwacher, and co-writer Chiara Barzini will present their film MAGARI (IF ONLY), which opened last year’s Locarno Film Festival.
CHIARA BARZINI is an inspired and inspiring being.
Born in Rome and raised in LA, she moved for some time to NY and then returned to her mother town where she now lives.
She is a writer and her debut collection of short fictions, SISTER STOP BREATHING, is out now.
The book is beautiful; the stories surreal, whismical, uncanny. You can read them all at once while holding your breath or slowly, one by one, breathing gently. Relishing each situation, each character, sure to stumble upon a story that is your own or of someone you know or maybe even of someone that has appeared in one of your dreams.
