Synopsis

Italian director Mimmo Verdesca tells the story of the legendary film star Alida Valli through the words of her unpublished letters and diaries that are brought to life by Giovanna Mezzogiorno's voice, enriching it with other exclusive materials: photographs, homemade films in 8 mm, and new interviews with her relatives, friends and collaborators, including Dario Argento, Roberto Benigni, Bernardo Bertolucci, Charlotte Rampling, Vanessa Redgrave and Margarethe von Trotta, amongst others.

The documentary film Alida (Alida Valli: In Her Own Words) shows a complete and never-before-seen portrait of the life of a young girl from Pula (Istria) who quickly became one of the most famous and beloved actresses of Italian and international cinema.
