La Casa del Cinema rende omaggio alla diva Audrey Hepburn

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 20 gennaio 2018

audrey hepburnRoma 20 gennaio 2018 Casa del cinema Largo Marcello Mastroianni, 1 Ore 16.30 Sala Deluxe | Cenerentola a Parigi (Funny Face), S. Donen, USA, 1957, 103’, v.o.sott.ita seguire (ore 18.00 circa) presentazione del libro Audrey Hepburn. Immagini di un’attrice di Margherita Lamesta Krebel
Oltre all’autrice presenzieranno all’incontro Marco Solfanelli (editore Tabula Fati), Maria Barresi (giornalista Rai TG1), Enrico Magrelli (critico cinematografico Hollywood Party), Roberto Mostarda (giornalista Wall Street International, già conduttore Giornale Radio Rai), Andrea Minuz (docente di Storia del Cinema presso La Sapienza Università di Roma) e Stefano Dominella (presidente Maison Gattinoni). La figura della Hepburn ancora oggi riecheggia in modo potente e trasversale. Tutti conoscono la sua straordinaria influenza nel mondo della moda, divenuta simbolo universale di bellezza e stile, ma poche volte sono stati messi in risalto il suo talento e le sue eccezionali capacità interpretative. Un originale animale scenico che l’American Film Institute ha definito “la terza più grande attrice di sempre”. Premio Oscar al debutto come protagonista in Vacanze Romane, è stata un esempio davvero singolare di carriera, in cui il numero dei film girati è pari al numero dei suoi film di successo.
Attraverso il fil rouge di quattro passaggi – innocenza, metamorfosi, moda e maturità – l’autrice ha voluto testimoniare la meravigliosa avventura cinematografica dell’interprete, focalizzando l’analisi sull’acting, senza trascurare la sua allure da diva iconica, capace di affascinare anche al di là della sua bravura. Arricchito dall’uso insolito di tavole-disegno, il libro presenta due inediti: una chiacchierata con il Prof. Andrea Dotti, secondo marito di Audrey Hepburn, e un’intervista a Giancarlo Berardi, ideatore di Julia, fumetto del 1998 con protagonista una detective di successo ispirata, nei lineamenti del volto, alla diva Audrey.
L’ottica saggistica del testo – favorita dalla formazione trasversale dell’autrice, che abbraccia cine-ma, moda e recitazione – dialoga con l’approccio passionale dell’autrice, per regalare a tutti la possibilità di apprezzare l’avventura artistica e umana di questa magnifica star.Margherita Lamesta Krebel, giornalista-pubblicista, scrive di cinema, teatro, arte e moda. Laureata in Lettere presso La Sapienza, ha seguito seminari sulla scrittura cinematografica con Vincenzo Cerami, Suso Cecchi D’Amico e Furio Scarpelli, a cura del prof. Orio Caldiron. Giorgio Strehler, Bruce Myers, Greta Seacat, Peter Brook, Michael Margotta, Arnaldo Ninchi, Carl Anderson, Riccardo Biseo, Cathy Marchand, Terry Taylor sono stati i suoi principali maestri nell’approccio alla performance recitativa.(foto: audrey hepburn)

Audrey Hepburn is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest icons in the history of both film and fashion.

The fervour continued with vigour through both the live and online auctions, with the marathon 10 hour live sale running until midnight.
