Margherita. La voce delle stelle

Italy, 2022, 52' 

Margherita Hack was a great scientist, a pioneer, a revolutionary, and a woman who entered the collective imagination as an iconic, almost pop figure. She wasn’t awarded the Nobel prize but reached unparalleled fame for an astrophysicist. What was the secret of her success, why ‘her’ of all people? A vegetarian, a sportswoman, a maverick, tenacious, extrovert, creative, idealist, and an atheist: all the faces of this passionate scholar is rooted in her existence, a life out of the box, that the film follows through her voice (thanks to a precious unreleased interview that constitutes both her farewell and legacy) and the voices of those who knew her closely. Interviews of memory, seen through the filter of recollection, pieces of life brought back to the audience with authenticity and warmth. A due and heartfelt homage to an extraordinary woman to celebrate the centenary anniversary of her birth: not just a biographical summary but the disclosure of the “real Margherita” in all her surprising facets, the enthralling and emotional story of a simple and yet extraordinary life.
