Bulli e pupe



A journey across postwar Italy up until the early 1960s, when young people who had lived through the horrors of war began planning their future, full of hope yet also bursting with contradictions. Interweaving dances and songs, old traditions and sudden changes, Bulli e pupe depicts a country about to enter the modern age, undergoing an epochal transformation in just a short span of time.


Chiara Ronchini started out as a film editor but has recently tried her hand at directing, driven by her fiery passion and ambition. She loves to rummage through archive material and harness the power of footage to cast a critical feminist gaze over the current political, anthropological and cultural landscape. She teamed up with Steve Della Casa to edit and direct Nessuno ci può giudicare (2017), winner of a Nastro d'Argento.
Steve Della Casa (Turin, 1953) was director of the Turin Film Festival and president of the European Coordination of Film Festivals between 1999 and 2002. He has also been a member of the Museo Nazionale del Cinema and president of the Torino Piemonte Film Commission. He is film critic for the Hollywood Party radio programme on RAI Radio 3 ), La Stampa newspaper and Film TV, Cineforum and Segnocinema magazines.
