Alice Rohrwacher made us Happy As Lazzaro

Alice Rohrwacher’s Cannes Best Screenplay award-winner tells a tale of friendship that takes place in present day and is adorned with mystical elements. Shot on 16mm film, Happy As Lazzaro follows the titular young farmer Lazzaro—a monument of goodness who lives in an idyllic village, and sets on a voyage through both time and space to find his best friend, the noble Tancredi. Alice Rohrwacher, whose The Wonders was internationally acclaimed, evokes Pasolini’s works in style and content in her latest film.
