Mia madre, 2016.

A harried filmmaker tries to juggle the demands of her latest movie with a personal life in shambles. The star of her film, a bombastic American actor imported for the production, presents nothing but headaches and her crew is close to mutiny. Away from the shoot, Margherita tries to hold her life together as her mother's illness progresses and her teenage daughter grows ever more distant.

Le Meraviglie: The wonders, 2016.

It centers on a family of beekeepers living in stark isolation in the Tuscan countryside. The dynamic of their overcrowded household is disrupted by the simultaneous arrival of a silently troubled teenage boy taken in as a farmhand and a reality TV show intent on showcasing the family.
