We all carry the title of a movie within us that has marked our memories and which, in some way, defines us. If it's true that a photographic portrait can tell a lot about a person, I believe that the movie we are most attached to can tell even more.

The goal of this project is to use cinema as a tool that will help people to tell their stories. These people were asked to define themselves through a movie, revealing a piece of their soul. As the "book people" of Fahrenheit 451 preserved the memory of the book, my series wants to link every person to the film of his life.

“It’s the film that physically excites me the most, I mean, I press play, I hear two notes and I can’t hold back the tears, I am a river, really. In addition to this very strong physical motivation, there’s also the way how the theme of diversity is told, it’s wonderful, it’s like a fairy tale. And then him, Danny Elfman: the soundtrack is fundamental for this film.”

It’s the perfect synthesis between literary and cinematographic work, it’s poetry, it lacks nothing and in Roy Batty’s final monologue there is everything. As a photography lover, I think it’s the film with the best cinematography ever and this makes the difference. I saw it recently, it gave me gooseflesh.”

"It’s a film that always makes me cry, it has a wonderful narrative. Many years ago, I wasn’t a Capra fan, then I was sent to the USA because I was commissioned to write a book about him and I fell in love with Frank Capra. At that time, I thought he was a sort of paternalistic fascist, but he’s a director who talks about America’s contradictions. During this movie, the scene that makes me cry is when after the nightmare about never having been born, he returns to the real world. It seems like a Christian fairy tale for children but it’s a film about America.”

My high school philosophy teacher showed me this film, it thrilled me because it wasn’t the usual sci-fi movie that we Westerners are used to, it didn’t have the usual plot where someone has to save someone else or where they have to save the Earth, but it’s focused on characters and their problems.

Sometimes my life looks like this movie, when I tell my experience about the circus, people often believe it and don’t believe it, these stories are so unusual (like a World Record and a Guinness Record in the Yucatan) that immediately create the “Big Fish” effect, it’s like a syndrome. Some years ago, when I was a warehouse worker, I did a commercial for Discovery Channel as a juggler: at work, my boss asked if that juggler was really me. I told him: “If I could do these things, you think that I’d work in a warehouse?” I didn’t tell the truth because if you reveal yourself, you change the balance. Even now, I work in a hospital, when I arrived, they had already seen me on TV, everybody recognizes me for the Mirror Show that has been on television in Italy and around the world: unfortunately you become immediately popular and it’s wrong because I could be the greatest impostor in the world and people talk only about a single episode of my life, not about my studies or what university I attended.

Mine would be Desk Set (1957) Katharine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy. Always loved the older movies, better writing/acting. This was already my favorite for a few years when my mother became ill with cancer and I was her caregiver. Although she had a fairly easy time of it, the days were long and I had trouble sleeping. This movie lulled me to sleep almost every night for that long but short year of losing my mother a little each day. It comforted me and made me laugh and several times I was able to fall asleep during the beginning credits but kept it on in case I woke up.
