Biography

In 1969, Nanni Moretti debuted in the water polo first division and in 1970 he played in the national youth team. In 1973, he made his first short film. In 1976, he made his first feature-length film, I am Self Sufficient, filmed on Super 8 film, which was later increased to 16 mm and distributed in the cinema. This was followed by Ecce Bombo (1978), Sweet Dreams (1981), Bianca (1984), The Mass is Ended (1985) – Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival – Red Lob (1989), Dear Diary (1993) best director at the 1994 Festival de Cannes, April (1998), The Son’s Room (2001) Palme d'or at the Festival de Cannes, The Caiman (2006) and We Have a Pope (2011).
He made his acting debut in the film Father and Master by the Taviani brothers (1977), and also acted in The Yes Man (directed by D. Luchetti in 1991), The Second Time (directed by M. Calopresti in 1995) and Quiet Chaos (directed by A. Grimaldi in 2008). With Sacher Film, founded in 1986 with Angelo Barbagallo, he has produced - in addition to his own films - the first works of Carlo Mazzacurati, Daniele Luchetti, Mimmo Calopresti and Valia Santella. Since 1991 he has managed and overseen the programme for the Nuovo Sacher cinema in Rome.
