Synopsis

A journey through post-WWII Italy, when the young people who had been powerless witnesses of the horrors of the conflict began to plan a new future for themselves, full of hope but also with many contradictions which inevitably came to the fore. Dances, songs, centuries-old traditions, and sudden changes: archival images counterpointed by analyses which the most clear-eyed intellectuals of the time were already proposing in real time.

Director statement

“The 1950s in Italy are usually described as the cold war years, the contrast between Catholics and Communists. While working with the archives, we saw  how the images were also telling another story. And by reading and listening to the theses which intellectuals from various political sides proposed in that period, we realized that the hopes and contradictions of those years could also be recounted in a different light, like a progression whose protagonists were the young generations, the same ones which would revolutionize the entire world during the following decade.”
