The Disappearance of My Mother
Directed by Beniamino Barrese
Iconic fashion model of the ’60s and radical feminist of the ’70s Benedetta Barzini wants to disappear. Now at the age of 75, she is fed up with all the roles that life has imposed on her and decides to leave everything and everybody behind. Only her son Beniamino is permitted to witness her journey. The making of his film documents a battle between mother and son, a stubborn fight to capture the ultimate image of Benedetta – that of her liberation.
A once-iconic fashion model’s plan to escape all media attention is disrupted by her son’s efforts to make a final film about her, sparking an unexpected collaboration.
