THE CRACK AND THE LIGHT. Interview with Elisa Fuksas
This meeting is part of a cycle of video interviews, made by the magazine Tracce, with Edith Bruck, Jesús Carrasco and Elisa Fuksas: three protagonists of the culture of our time tell each other in a one-on-one conversation, offering their gaze on today, through the wounds of personal and collective history. The title is inspired by Leonard Cohen’s verse, taken from Anthem: “There is a crack in everything and from there the light enters.”
Elisa Fuksas, writer and film director, takes us along the paths of her work and research. Love, loneliness, art: listening to the mystery of life is a sincere and unexpected journey that has challenged her beliefs. Born in 1981, she is the daughter of the archistars Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas: she directed Nina, The App and iSola; has published among others: “La figlia di” (The daughter of) (Rizzoli, 2014) and “Ama e fai quello che vuoi” (Love and do what you want) (Marsilio, 2020).
