Synopsis 

The film recounts an experience, that of a director and his two actors at grips with a play: from the first meeting to the initial readings, the rehearsals done at home, the ones done on stage and finally the first performance. But an experience that took place in the peculiar situation in which the whole of Italian culture found itself in the days between the first and second wave of the pandemic, when it really seemed possible to restart and the feeling of euphoria was accompanied by the illusion that the worst was behind us. Once again we were suddenly checked in our desire for beauty, for life.

Director’s Statement

The theatre and the cinema are part of a normality that was taken from us like a right trampled on, like an injustice we were forced to undergo. These reflections, these more intimate thoughts, make up a sort of story told off-screen, as if they were peculiar interviews in which the answers are to questions concerning our life and soul. Preghiera della sera is not a sociological rumination, still less a scientific one; it is in fact a secular prayer that makes no requests and wonders about the impossibility of making sense of what has happened.
