"Pasolini has always been a constant reference of my cinema. The question of roots, of identity, is becoming increasingly serious in our era of globalization and the Italian director prophesized it almost half a century ago ". So Robert Guédiguian , director, screenwriter and French film producer, today at Belmond Villa San Michele di Fiesole , talking about Italian cinema, on the occasion of the Fiesole Award to the Masters of Cinema 2018 , prestigious recognition conferred by the Municipality of Fiesole in collaboration with the National Syndicate Italian Film Critics of the Tuscan Group and the Sistema Toscana Foundation, with the artistic direction of Gabriele Rizza.

At the end of the award ceremony the villa - La casa sul mare (original version with subtitles) will be screened in Méjan, a marine cove between Marseille and Carry, where three brothers meet at their father's bedside. But when we think about finding ourselves in front of a classic regulation of family accounts, the plot is multiplied and opens up to meetings, dramas, poetry and the present (in case of rain, the ceremony will take place at the Odeon cinema in Florence).

"For more than 30 years Guédiguian - Rizza said - evokes the social news of the working world of his childhood but at the same time tells an adventure full of reflections. A popular filmmaker, a militant spirit, a political activist close to the leftist circles, for Guédiguian, making films means embarking on a path, each time initiated, alongside friends and collaborators who have become companions of life ".

Among his best-known films are the walks at the Campo di Marte (2005), focusing on the last days of Francois Mitterrand's rule and on Georges-Marc Benamou's book "Le dernier Mitterrand" and the tribute to Armenia Le Voyage en Arménie. In recent years he has signed the historical L'Armée du crime (2009) which tells the true story of the communist Armenian hero Missak Manouchian and his twenty-two companions who were assassinated by the Nazis in 1944. In Le nevis del Kilimanjaro (2001), where he resumed an old working class, however, is strongly in struggle with the new contemporary society, coming to enormous individualism and selfishness in order not to see what is theirs and which they have earned with the sweat of the old strikes carried away only in appearance; Au fil d'Ariane (2014); Une histoire de fou (2015), inspired by the autobiography of José Antonio Gurriaran. Robert Jules Guédiguian is a director, screenwriter and producer born in Marseilles in France on 3 December 1953 from an Armenian father and a German mother. Among others he also directed Marius and Jeannette (1997), In place of the heart (1998), À l'attaque!
