Two reasons to smile as you go back to work (me, I never stopped working this summer). The first: the official confirmation that “Mondine – From mother to daughter”, the film produced by Davide Ferrario on a concept by Jessica and me, will be premiéred at Toronto International Film Festival, the only Italian documentary to make it this year.
