Monica Bellucci starred in the TV series about the Italian actress and photographer Tina Modotti, which was one of the first feminists. The film was called “Radical view: the Life and era of Tina Modotti” (Radical Eye: The Life and Times of Tina Modotti) and will consist of six episodes, reports Variety.
In 1913 Modotti emigrated to the United States, where he starred in silent movies. In the 1930s, it was widely famous in Europe and Mexico through his photographs and revolutionary activity. She supported the policies of the left, and advocated granting women more freedoms in the early twentieth century.
The script for this project, written by Paula Vaccaro and Aaron brookner, who are also the producers of the film. Previously, the character of Tina Modotti appeared in the famous biopic “Frida” (2002) Julie Taymor. It is noted that the initiator of the creation of a separate film about this feminist was made by Monica Bellucci.
This will be the first major role Bellucci in a TV movie. Previously, she played in these projects only a small role (“Mozart in the jungle”, “twin Peaks”).
Filming will take place in Italy, Mexico and Los Angeles. Will be directed by Edoardo de Angelis, whose painting “Indivisible” won three prizes at the Venice film festival and was nominated for a Golden globe.
As previously reported, Bellucci will play in the European Thriller about spies “spider in the web” and the Australian horror film “the Necromancer”. And last year, the actress played the leading anniversary 70-th Cannes film festival.
