Since 1998 Little Minx has championed the careers of outstanding filmmakers who innovate with both creativity and intelligence. As a certified woman-owned production company, we have embraced diversity in our roster, crews, and staff for 22 years. This philosophy of inclusion is more than our mantra—it’s our mission. It’s the reason the company was founded, and it remains the most essential part of everything we do.
In the past 20 years, Luca Guadagnino has directed, written, and/or produced over 20 movies, collaborating with actress Tilda Swinton on the films The Protagonists (1999), I Am Love (2010), A Bigger Splash (2015), and a remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria (2018). I Am Love garnered 14 major wins and 26 nominations, including Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globes.
Luca’s masterpiece Suspiria was the most anticipated film of 2018, and features an original (and first ever!) score by composer Thom Yorke of Radiohead.
His film Call Me By Your Name was a major hit at the 2018 Academy Awards, winning for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as three nominations for Best Picture, Best Leading Actor, and Best Original Song. It also earned 16 wins and over 30 major nominations during the 2017-2018 awards season run.
A passionate music lover, Luca is currently developing a film based on the central themes of Bob Dylan’s 1975 album Blood on the Tracks with a screenplay written by Richard LaGravenese. He also just released an eight-episode series for HBO titled We Are Who We Are, which centers on a pair of teenagers discovering themselves while living on an Italian military base. In addition, he is attached to direct an adpatation of Scarface, and Warner Bros.’ latest adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies.
But Luca’s vision doesn’t stop at movies. Although not a designer by trade, he recently assembled a crew of 150 Italian craftspeople to execute his inaugural experiment in interior design — a 9,600 square-foot, 2-story ochre mansion on the shores of Lake Como, owned by Yoox founder Federico Marchetti and his partner, Kerry Olsen.
Who can guess what’s next for this thoroughly modern Master?
