film profile] Laura Luchetti, has commenced in the Emilia-Romagna region. Produced by Riccardo Russo on behalf of BIM Produzione (of the Wild Bunch Group) and RAI Fiction for the streaming platform RAI Play, Nudes is an Italian remake of the homonymous Norwegian teen drama and will unfold across 10 episodes, each lasting 20 minutes and exploring the subject of revenge porn.
Penned by Emanuela Canonico, Valerio D’Annunzio, Matteo Menduni and Giulio Fabroni, Nudes recounts the experiences of a group of teenagers who find themselves contending with the online posting of sexual images, and ventures into the insidious world of social media, utilising an intimate form of language and adopting the viewpoint of its young protagonists. The series tackles the phenomenon of revenge porn with a modern and realistic outlook on adolescents, but it also opens the eyes of adult audiences to the dangerous relationship between the internet and sexuality for the younger members of our societies.
“Nudes is a project that means a great deal to me and which provides me with an opportunity to talk realistically and in depth about the phenomenon of revenge porn, which is an alarming reality for young people and highly topical”, states Luchetti, the director of the 2018 Toronto Film Festival’s Discovery film Twin Flower, and the winner of the Silver Ribbon for her animated short Sugarlove.
The original series was a great success in Norway and was sold by Wild Bunch TV in numerous countries, including the UK. Shooting on the Italian version of Nudes will unfold between Casalecchio di Reno, San Giovanni in Persiceto and Bologna, with the support of the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Emilia-Romagna Film Commission.
