Born in Piacenza in 1939, Marco Bellocchio graduated from the Rome film school Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. Since shocking Locarno with his debut feature I pugni in tasca (Fists in the Pocket, 1965), he has continued to practice subversive filmmaking with a rare degree of rigor and intuition, prising open the hidden secrets of Italian society. His other films include Nel nome del padre (In the Name of the Father, 1972), La condanna  (The Conviction, 1991, Silver Bear at the Berlinale), L'ora di religione (My Mother’s Smile, 2002) and Vincere (2009).
