Happy Mary
Una ex attrice si ritrova a interpretare il ruolo della Madonna in una processione pasquale e inizia a interrogarsi sulla figura di Maria. Attraverso una appassionata e irriverente ricerca che passa per la saggezza popolare di anziani credenti, le testimonianze di vari personaggi evangelici, i ricordi d’infanzia e le proprie rivendicazioni politiche, la donna restituisce un inaspettato ritratto di Maria come archetipo femminile.

Editing of English translations and English surtitles provided by the Italian Program, Montclair State University. In particular the supertitles of Angela’s Wars have been curated by the students¬†Oscar Guevara Perez, Cheryl Yodice.
