An film by Alina Marazzi
Italy, 2007 BW / Color, 84 minutes
Produced by Mir Cinematografica srl
Anita, Teresa and Valentina have never met each other. They lived the sixties and seventies Italy, with different ages and in different cities, writing each a diary of their emotions, hopes and fights. Their real stories, told in a movie built of extraordinary images of that particular period, give a particular and lively proof of that season of fights that a lot of women carried on in their families and society, to declare their autonomy and rights.
This generation movement changed the face of the old patriarchal Italy, melting together different private events in a collective vision that had an over whelming social and cultural impact.
“Alina Marazzi’s uncommon talent and personal style has been confirmed. Her sensibility and cleverness have to be admired”.
Paolo D’Agostini, La Repubblica
“The feminist awareness told without prejudices, with passion and irony”.
Paolo Mereghetti, Corriere della Sera.
“A movie that speaks the secret, discomposed, phantasmagoric and eclectic language, of a woman that looks like us”.
Roberta Ronconi, Liberazione.
