This Is How a Child Becomes a Poet

Céline Sciamma
Frankreich, Italien 2023

V'23

Kurz nach dem Tod der italienischen Dichterin Patrizia Cavalli im Juni 2022 fotografiert Céline Sciamma diese traurig-schöne Hommage. Sie besucht Cavallis Wohnung in Rom, bevor sie geräumt wird, und bewahrt in ihren Fotos diesen Ort, gerade erst verlassen und ganz gegenwärtig, in seiner alltäglichen Ordnung der Unordnung. Dabei schließt sie den Kreis zwischen Ende und Anfang der Poetin, wenn Kim Novak in einer Szene aus dem Film PICNIC die Treppe herabsteigt und wir begreifen, wie sie Cavalli zu ihrem allerersten Gedicht verführte. (Barbara Kronsfoth)

In Anwesenheit von Céline Sciamma.

Céline Sciamma pivots towards non-fiction as she crafts a typically sensitive tribute to Patrizia Cavalli in her new short film. Capturing and thus archiving the celebrated Italian poet’s house shortly before it was to be cleared, following her death in 2022, Sciamma dedicates two compositions to each room. But Cavalli was also a cinephile who harboured a childhood crush on Kim Novak, another outsider figure despite the emblematic status she attained due to her work with Hitchcock. Literature thus leads to cinema and back again, as different feminine creativities merge. (James Lattimer)
