Franca: Chaos and Creation at Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival



Franca: Chaos and Creation at Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival

Franca is a loving portrait of a woman and mother who eschewed traditional roles for women and fearlessly used issues of Vogue Italia to address issues of eating disorders, abuse, race, environmental pollution, plastic surgery and body image. With interviews from Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Courtney Love and many others, Carrozzini gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into his mother’s creative process as well as a peek into her vulnerabilities, both past and present. Deeply insightful and often emotional, this film is like a love letter from a son to his mother.

Director's Note

When my father died, I realized my mother was all I had left. Seeking a deeper level of connection, I turned my camera on her as a means of exploring our relationship in a new way and also to confront the questions I had never asked before. I wanted to understand the choices she had made throughout her personal life, but also gain insight into her work in the fashion world and share the story of her groundbreaking career. This film, which took 4 years to complete, is as much a testament to her legacy as it is an act of love.
