Between 1967 and 1976, Goliarda Sapienza wrote The Art of Joy, a subversive fresque set in her 20th Century Italy. Too outrageous to be published at the time, the novel left its author to die in poverty and anonymity. 100 years after Goliarda Sapienza’s birth, this documentary sheds an unprecedented light on this cursed but nonetheless empowering masterpiece.
