NOTES

DIRECTOR’S NOTE

In RICORDI MI, I wanted to combine two worlds—the worlds of ‘reality’ and of ‘fantasy’—which the pain of losing a loved-one can sometimes render indistinguishable.

In the film, I chose to treat the imaginary as part of the real and to endow it with the power to liberate. I tried to draw near to another dimension of loss.
Bringing the two worlds together was a narrational and stylistic challenge. The film is a reconciliation of sorts with the things we don’t understand.
