Interview: Andrea Pallaoro – Hannah

Rare are the film narratives that place so much emphasis on the backstory without…divulging it. Rare in cinema do we find unflappable and muted septuagenarians absorbing the hurt derived by other people’s resolve. Formerly know as The Whale (the beached decomposing mammal in this portrait might be an allegory of sorts), Andrea Pallaoro‘s sophomore film is nothing short of a masterwork. During TIFF, Amir sat down with Andrea Pallaoro to discuss the inspiration, the choice of Venice Film Festival winning Charlotte Rampling as the film’s lead, the psychology of the character and her immediate environment and the influence of Chantal Akerman on this specific piece. Hannah is currently playing in some arthouse theatres stateside.
