streaming > Simple Women by Chiara Malta

In this innovative fiction debut from Chiara Malta, a director with epilepsy trying to make a film about the life of famed Romanian actor Elina Löwensohn discovers that her real-life subject bears little resemblance to the star she idolized.

Federica (Jasmine Trinca), a clumsy and graceless Italian director, has her first epileptic seizure on Christmas Day 1989. Since childhood, her only passion has been cinema, and one film in particular played an important role: Hal Hartley's Simple Men, in which Romanian actor Elina Löwensohn has an onscreen seizure. For Federica, it is a critical moment of reflection and connection.

Years later, Federica has the opportunity to make a film in Bucharest about the life of her long-time icon but not everything goes as planned. In the heat of the moment, Federica has a seizure that turns her mind inside out. Everything is a blur until, almost magically, everything acquires a new perspective.
