Striking, honest and poetic in equal measure, Wake Me Up At Midnight is a patchwork collage of a young woman's life.
The woman in question is Italian journalist and writer Fuani Marino – impulsive, creative, brilliant and suffering from undiagnosed mental illness.
When Fuani marries and has a baby, her world begins to spiral out of control.This exquisitely-composed reflection on a life, is pieced together entirely from archival material – inventively using both personal and public archives.
Narrated by the magnetic Fuani herself, it intimately tells a very human story of hope and perseverance, in sublime Italian style.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Francesco Patierno, hosted by Malaika Bova.
