Ada is charmed by the subtle limit that separates reality and memory, and lets the nostalgic memories of her father mix with the simple sound of everyday events.

Inspired by the poems in the collection "Memory in the Body" by Antonella Sica, the film explores the theme of death, its almost dreamlike presence in the world of the living and the power of gestures and its symbolic value in evoking memories.

Directed by Daniela Lucato
B&W, 12 minutes, Italy / Germany

I started studying acting in Italy during the University. After my degree in Philosophy with a thesis in cultural anthropology about contemporary dance, I moved to Rome, Wellington and Berlin where I am still living and working as an actress/performer for theatre/film.

Since 2013 I started to write/direct. Call Me Reality (2013) is my first theatre piece. In 2014 I wrote and directed The Birthday, a short film in mandarin/english language(23 Official selections/1 Nomination).

In 2015 I founded Connecting Fingers Company. My last works: Connecting Fingers (2015) , the feature documentary When I dance(2016), For the time being (2018). For the Theatre Dance: The Wheel Performance and short(2017), The Rebellious Body(2018), Sex in Translation (work in progress) and Trilogy(Work in progress).

I'm now writing the script of my first feature film Alice still has a dream.
