    We live in a society that’s still obsessed with youth...sometimes you are watching a film, and even a baker has a six-pack. It’s a political issue, and as a director, I have a responsibility to be honest, without showing every single wrinkle.

    Filippo MENEGHETTI (1980, Italy) studied Film Directing and Anthropology at the Sapienza University of Rome. He released his documentary debut, MAISTRAC: LAVORARE IN CANTIERE (2009). His short film L'INTRUSO (2012) won the Audience Award at the Angers FF, and was later followed by another short film, LA BÊTE (2018). His first feature film, TWO OF US (2019), premiered at Toronto IFF as part of the Discovery program and is France's submission to the 93rd Academy Awards.
