Italian film-maker Laura Luchetti is directing a new series called Nudes. Filming began in Italy’s Emilia Romagna region, with principal locations in Casalecchio di Reno, San Giovanni in Persiceto and Bologna.
Produced by BIM Produzione and RAI Fiction for RAI Play, Nudes is an Italian remake of a Norwegian series of the same name exploring the issue of revenge porn in ten 20 minute episodes. The series focusses on a group of teenagers when photos of a sexual nature involving them are posted on social media. This potentially devastating problem is seen through the eyes and perspective of these young people. “Nudes is a project close to my heart,” the director said in interview, “giving me the chance to show revenge porn in a realistic, in-depth way. For young people it’s an alarming and very topical reality.” For her project, Laura Luchetto received the support of the Emilia Romagna region and the Emilia Romagna Film Commission.
