“BY ACTING, YOU FREE YOURSELF FROM A MENTAL CAGE. YOU ARE NOT IN TOTAL CONTROL AND THAT’S WHAT I LIKE. YOU CAN BE IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING, BUT YOU REACH CONTROL BY LOSING IT. WHEN YOU FORGET ABOUT YOURSELF.”

The “Mary” coffee bar is a typical meeting point for those who live in the Prati neighborhood in Rome and deal with cinema. The owners are really nice and kind, they call customers by their names and they cook like your grandma would. Alba and I often meet there, randomly, at any time of the day. However, we met years ago in Park city for the Sundance Film Festival. She was there to present a movie by Anna Negri. Afterwards, we also worked together on a Luca Guadagnino’s movie: I Am Love. I worked as producer and she as actress, playing Tilda’s Swinton daughter. It was a very beloved movie.

“Our” bar seemed, then, the most appropriate place for our special interview, which was more like a talk between two friends.Throughout her 10-year long career Alba Rohrwacher, has been working with the greatest directors and with authors of brave first works. She participated in the most important festivals worldwide, where she won several awards for her performances. She is absolutely the most interesting Italian actress of her generation. Because of the depth, the strength and the originality of her work. And because of her courage. I know her story. Now we talk about her art.
