For the past six decades, Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic fixture on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Oscar for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys - including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and video clips.

On the 90th anniversary of the birth of Anne Frank (1929-2019) the documentary “#AnneFrank – Parallel lives” will be released in Italian cinemas; the film will be scheduled with projections-event only on 11, 12 and 13 November (soon it will be possible to access information on the participating rooms on nexodigital.it). Helen Mirren will be the exceptional guide to the documentary, written and directed by Sabina Fedeli and Anna Migotto.

The documentary film traces the existential pain of Anne through the pages of her diary, a text that has allowed millions of readers around the world to learn about the tragedy of Nazism through the eyes of those who dreamed of becoming a great writer as an adult. The story of Anne Frank is intertwined with the testimony of 5 Holocaust survivors (Arianna Szörenyi, Sarah Lichtsztejn-Montard, Helga Weiss and sisters Andra and Tatiana Bucci) who with faith and determination continue to tell the new generations about pain and absurdity of the evil that took shape in the Holocaust. #AnneFrank – Parallel lives is aimed above all at young people and seeks, through a cinematographic language that refers to the world of social networks, to retrace the past through the media mentality of the current generation. A young actress, played by Martina Gatti, has the role of incarnating this directorial intent, guiding us to the places of Anne and the survivors of the Holocaust. Martina writes a sort of digital diary able to speak to her peers: an immediate way to relate the tragedies passed with the present.
