Costretto al lockdown, come tutti in Europa, Luca Guadagnino sta però terminando la post-produzione di tre diversi progetti. La serie tv per HBO, la produzione del film di Cito Filomarino e un documentario su un’icona della moda italiana.
“I’m working, because I’m in post-production on three different projects. I’m doing a show for HBO called ‘We Are Who We Are.’ I produced a movie directed by Ferdinand Cito Filomarino with John David Washington called ‘Born to Be Murdered.’ I’m almost finished making a documentary called ‘Salvatore, the Shoemaker of Dreams,’ on the life of the great shoemaker Salvatore Ferragamo.”
Rispetto alla situazione attuale ha dichiarato a Vulture: “I see pictures from cities around the world that are looking the same as Italy,” he said. “My personal opinion is that it looks a little bit like some futuristic dystopia, like in ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth.’ It’s a little bit like ‘Omega Man’ or the end of the great movie by John Carpenter ‘In the Mouth of Madness.’”
Guadagnino ha poi parlato di Joe Biden e della sua infelice presa di posizione all’ultimo dibattito delle primarie americane, sul supposto ‘fallimento del modello italiano di sanità pubblica’: “Yesterday, in the debate that he had with [Bernie] Sanders, Joe Biden said that a national health system basically would not work in America, and pointed to how much it didn’t work in Italy. […] It is thankfully due to the national health system of Italy that we are saving lives and that this thing is being handled. People are being tested instead of being ignored, and people who cannot afford insurance can get into the hospital and pay nothing for it.”
