As we look up toward the designers that inspire us as filmmakers and designers, we ask them what inspired them. This year, Production Designer Hannah Beachler (BLACK PANTHER, MOONLIGHT, CREED, LEMONADE) is in the spotlight and chose THE CONFORMIST as one of the films that inspired her to become a designer.
The film was directed by Oscar-winning Writer/Director/Producer Bernardo Bertolucci, and designed by Oscar-winning Production Designer Ferdinando Scarfiotti, best known for THE LAST EMPEROR, TOYS and LAST TANGO IN PARIS.
In THE CONFORMIST, Marcello Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a member of the secret police in Mussolini’s Fascist Italy. He and his new bride, Giulia (Stefania Sandrelli), travel to Paris for their honeymoon, where Marcello also plans to assassinate his former college professor Luca Quadri (Enzo Tarascio), an outspoken anti-Fascist living in exile. But when Marcello meets the professor’s young wife, Anna (Dominique Sanda), both his romantic and his political loyalties are tested. Moderating the discussion with Production Designer Hannah Beachler will be Art Director Michael Allen Glover.
