The shoot for Sulla giostra (lit. “On the Merry-go-round”), the new film by Giorgia Cecere, has begun in and around Alessano (Lecce). The movie stars Claudia Gerini, Lucia Sardo and Alessio Vassallo, and features a special guest appearance by Paolo Sassanelli.
The movie revolves around two fundamentally different women and a clash between two generations of ladies who, after spending years apart, find themselves thrown together again in an elegant old country house in deepest Salento. Day after day, almost without realising it, they transform this accidental encounter into the starting point for an unexpected new life. The cast and crew are spending four weeks on set to create this female-centred comedy with ironic and light-hearted overtones, about accepting your own destiny and the “merry-go-round” we call life.
“The film tells of Irene’s coming of age and her process of self-(re)discovery: day after day, thanks to the confrontations and the clashes with Ada, this woman who is so determined and focused on her objectives will also choose to hop on the old housekeeper’s ‘merry-go-round’, on which she accepts all the twists of fate that life throws at her and is able to smile about them. Thus, she will emerge stronger and, at the same time, also more sensitive and, above all, more independent.” So says director and screenwriter Giorgia Cecere, previously a student and protégée of Gianni Amelio. As a director, she helmed Il primo incarico [+lee también:

Sulla giostra was written by Giorgia Cecere and Pier Paolo Pirone, and it is being produced by Anele together with Rai Cinema, in association with Notorious Pictures and Luigi de Vecchi, and with support from the Apulia Film Commission. Notorious Pictures will oversee its distribution.
