Angela Ricci Lucchi

Angela Ricci Lucchi (Lugo di Romagna, Italy, 1942), who trained as a painter, has been working together with Yervant Gianikian (Merano, Italy, 1942) as filmmakers since the 1970s. Both live in Milan. Their productions are the result of a special treatment of old nitrate film material. Following extensive archival research, the chosen film fragments are subjected to coloring, a re-editing of the sequences, and changes in velocity. After these changes, the films offer a clearer insight into the leading interests of the artists: technicalization, fascism, colonialism, war, and forced migration.
