FRED Film Radio meets with Sophia Takal to learn what drove the making of her second feature Always Shine, here at Venice Days 2016. A thriller about one of the scariest things in the movie industries – actresses’ competition – Always Shine makes us reflect on the physical, emotional and even philosophical struggle that every female actor must face in her career.
