Diario di una stupida

Film screening of an Italian theatrical monologue.

“Diario di una stupida” is an artful one-woman performance by Italian actress Cristina Galardini, written by playwright Anna Panunto.

This partly biographical monologue, set in 1967/68 Montreal is the story of a young, vivacious Italian-Canadian woman named Rosa, who finds herself suddenly married at the age of 18 to a handsome Italian immigrant (a paesano of the family). As Rosa’s story unfolds, the viewers are taken on an unexpected journey as she reveals intimate details of her life and asserts a feminist voice - one that is not taken lightly for a woman of her times.

A candid story with a strong performance by Galardini, this is a must-see that will surely touch the hearts of many.

This film is screened in Italian without subtitles, and no intermission.
