Franca Chaos and Creationa Film by Francesco Carrozzini

Presented at 73rd Venice International Film Festival
as part of Cinema nel Giardino

When his father passed away, Francesco Carrozzini realized his mother was all he had left, and decided to turn his camera on her as a mean of exploring their relationship. Through a deeply insightful and often emotional film, he creates an intimate portrait of his mother, Franca Sozzani, the legendary Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia. Featuring interviews from Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Courtney Love and many others, Carrozzini makes the viewer have a behind the scenes glimpse into his mother’s creative process. From the ridiculous to the sublime, her astonishing but often controversial magazine covers have not only broken the rules, but have set the high bar for fashion, art and commerce over the past twenty five years redefining the concept of beauty.  

 

“OF COURSE I AM A WINNER. I’M SURE OF THIS. NOT BECAUSE I’M FULL OF MYSELF, BUT BECAUSE I SCORED WITH ALL MY IDEAS.” – FRANCA SOZZANI
