Saturday 14 April was the moment of Jasmine Trinca. With her latest film, Lucky (Fortunata)  by Sergio Castellitto, in addition to the Best Actress award in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival and the Silver Ribbon in 2017, she has just won the David di Donatello 2018. Again under the direction of  Castellitto in his You Can’t Save Yourself Alone, in 2015, she was nominated for both the David di Donatello and the Silver Ribbon.

This young girl, who had been chosen for The Son’s Room among thousands of high-school students despite having other plans for her own future, is certainly having a brilliant career dotted with great acting performances that have won her numerous and prestigious awards.  

In 2003 she received yet another Silver Ribbon for The Best of Youth by Marco Tullio Giordana, alongside the whole female cast of the film. Two years later, in 2006, Nanni Moretti wanted to work again with her in The Caiman. In 2009 she participated in the Venice Film Festival with The Big Dream by Michele Placido (for whom she later starred also in Romanzo criminale), a film for which she received the Marcello Mastroianni Award. Two more Silver Ribbons in 2013: for There Will Come A Day by Giorgio Diritti and Honey by Valeria Golino.

Trinca’s filmography boasts more than 20 works directed by the greatest authors of Italian cinema, in addition to those mentioned above: Riccardo Milani (Piano, solo), Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (Meraviglioso Boccaccio), to mention just a few. She has also starred in several shorts (for Francesca Archibugi and Valerio Mastandrea) and TV series. We also find her beyond the borders of Italian cinema, in Ultimatum by Alain Tasma, The Gunman by Pierre Morel and Saint Laurent by Bertrand Bonello. The actress has recently worked on two Italian films currently in post-production, Euphoria by Valeria Golino and Sulla mia pelle by Alessio Cremonini, in which she plays Ilaria Cucchi. She will soon be working on two films abroad, The Man Who Saved Paris by Canadian director Robert Budreau with Kristin Scott Thomas and Stanley Tucci, and Red Snake by French director Caroline Fourest, “a war film on the war of women”.

During the Festival del Cinema Europeo, ten of her most representative films were screenedThe Son’s Room by Nanni Moretti (2001), The Best of Youth by Marco Tullio Giordana (2003), The Big Dream by Michele Placido (2009), L’ApollonideSouvenirs de la maison close by Bertrand Bonello (2010), There Will Come A Day by Giorgio Diritti (1995), Honey by Valeria Golino (2013), Une autre vie by Emmanuel Mouret (2013), You Can’t Save Yourself Alone by Sergio Castellitto (2015), The Gunman by Pierre Morel (2015), Lucky (Fortunata) by Sergio Castellitto (2017).
