MATRIARCA ’74 is a conversation between a grandmother and a grandson – an actress and an actor – about the revolutionary power of voice, listening and silence. It’s about the feminism of a septuagenarian woman, an April Revolution yet to be fulfilled, the dynamics typical of a family of artists and the fears of what tomorrow holds. There is a call for the time of calm and hugging, in a performative dilution of fiction with auto-biography.
