Director’s note:

“Me and Her: Lorenza Indovina and Alda Merini is the result of a hybrid language: a mix between a backstage and cinematographic style, an experience amid the documentary and the fiction. In order to follow the actress in her creative path, it is necessary to adopt a documentary language. The camera becomes a logbook, a confident to tell doubts, difficulties, discovers. The real staging has a more cinematographic language. The result is an original product: a unique adventure in the intimate and secret world of the performer and the performed.”
