 Film: Gabriella Cristiani : “Desert Roses” Documentary

After a twenty-year professional journey with director Bernardo Bertolucci, award-winning editor Gabriella Cristiani expresses the spirit of the cast and crew and reveals the emotional journey they traveled during filming of “The Sheltering Sky” (1990). Told entirely in first person by the talents behind the scenes, the documentary “Desert Roses” captures John Malkovich, Debra Winger, Campbell Scott, producers, and even Bertolucci himself in a visual poem that embodies the soul of the process beautifully and completely.

For her feature directing bow, Cristiani chose “Ladies Room” (1999), a triptych tale of three overlapping stories that compliment, build on, and finally inform each other. Lorraine Bracco, Greta Scacchi, and John Malkovich bring a dramatic depth to a comedy that probes the relationship between wives and lovers, and women of youth and maturity.
