The director of the Cinema Sector of the Biennale, Alberto Barbera, “She is one of the most emblematic protagonists of the new Italian cinema of the 1960s. Liliana Cavani is a versatile artist capable of frequenting television, theater, and opera music with the same unconventional spirit, and the same intellectual restlessness that made her films famous. Hers has always been a non-conformist thought, free from ideological preconceptions and unencumbered by conditioning of any kind. She is moved by the urgency of the continuous search for a truth hidden in the most hidden and mysterious parts of the human soul, up to the borders of spirituality.”
