Pregnant – by Nefeli Sarri
Italy 2015, 45′, Italian with English subtitles
Nine months to get used to the idea. Nine months to get physically and phychologically prepared. The body transformed, prepared to embrace. PREGNANT is the story of young actress’s pregnancy. She looked forward to this moment all her life, always having imagined a baby girl but now expecting a baby boy. Nine months to let go of something that kept her locked in the past and become a mother. A visual diary, playing with memories and present time. On a personal quest to know who she is, Cristina loses and finds herself; a path, though sometimes hard to follow, meaningful and liberating.
An Athens native and Architecture graduate, she worked as an architect in Greece. In 2010, she graduated in directing fiction from the school of cinema Nuct in Rome. During her studies she wrote and directed short feature films, in 2011 she worked as a co-screenwriter for the documentary “Step for two”. PREGNANT is her first personal documentary film.
