Official Film Trailer

The Disappearance of my Mother” - A fashion icon in the 1960s and the muse of Warhol and Dalí, Italian model Benedetta Barzini defied expectations by becoming a journalist and professor, speaking out against the misogyny of her former milieu. Today, her aversion to cameras has tipped her into an existential crisis. Now in her 70s, she tells her son, filmmaker Beniamino Barrese, that she wants to “disappear.” But Barrese has been filming his mother since he was a child and is not about to give up without a fight. In an act of love fraught with contradiction, he decides, despite her resistance, to make the documentary as a tribute to her freedom.
