Marco Bellochio’s career spans over half a century, which places him side by side with the most important Italian filmmakers such as Bernard Bertolucci, and the director’s close friend Pier Paolo Pasolini, with whom he shared his zeal for extreme opposition to conservative censorship, and also an inciting approach to burning issues in both the cinema and cinematic form. Bellochio’s bountiful filmography includes political dramas, sardonic satires of the Catholic Church and unconventional adaptations of classics (Henry VI based on Luigi Pirandello’s play starring Marcello Mastroianni and Claudia Cardinale). Ever since his feature film debut Fists in the Pocket in 1965, his films are regularly screened at the prestigious Venice and Cannes Film Festivals.  These screenings include Bellochio’s Good Morning, Night from 2003 and the 2009 film Vincere, about Benito Mussolini’s first wife. Bellochio’s newest film Blood of My Blood takes place behind monastery walls and the Italian star Alba Rohrwacher, who visited Febiofest last year, portrays one of the main characters. In recent years, Febiofest screened Bellochio’s films Vincere or Dormant Beauty.
