The Istituto Luce turned ninety in 2014, its decades-long history intertwined with that of Italy itself, through cinema and that unique treasure trove of images known to all as the Luce Archives. To celebrate its anniversary, some of the most acclaimed rising filmmakers in Italy were invited to make a small film, with each director selecting ten minutes of footage from the archives, out of the thousands of hours of footage to be found there.




ALICE ROHRWACHER made her first documentary, Un piccolo spettacolo, in 2003. In 2006 she took part in the collective documentary Checosamanca. After her feature directorial debut with Corpo Celeste in 2011, the film The Wonders definitively established her reputation in 2014.
