An astonishing and rarely screened film on 1968, set in Rome (mostly just a few steps from the BSR) but interconnected to Vietnam and other internationalist causes of the era. The director, Alessandra Bocchetti, after few experiences as filmmaker became one of the most important feminist thinkers in Italy.

The screening will be followed by a roundtable discussion with the director Alessandra Bocchetti and the producer of the film, Paola Scarnati. Light refreshments will be served after the film.

An Italian activist and writer, Alessandra Bocchetti began her experiences in her youth as a director for Unitelefilm, the production company of the Italian Communist Party. In 1975, she founded the feminist collective “Studio Ripetta” in Rome, which takes its name from the street where it is located: a community of study on history, philosophy, anthropology, sociology and literature through the critical feminist point of view. In 1978, she founded with others the “Centro Culturale Virginia Woolf – Università delle Donne”, an ideal continuation of the Ripetta Studio. To date, she is a member of the feminist group “Se non ora quando Factory”.

In 1979 Paola Scarnati promoted the establishment of the Archivio Storico Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico (Historical Audiovisual Archive of the Workers’ and Democratic Movement), which she directed for many years, and of which she was a member of the Board of Directors (from 2011 to 2018). From 2016 to 2019, she promoted and was a member of the Directorate of the Cesare Zavatini/ Unarchive Prize. She currently collaborates with the same archive, among others on “Il progetto e le forme di un cinema politico”. He was a member of the National Council at the Garante per la Radiodiffusione e l’Editoria. He represented Italy in the Board of Map Tv (Memory-Archives-Programmes) EU Media Programme. In 2016, she received the Seal of Peace of the City of Florence, for her activity in preserving the audiovisual memory of our country and its use in training and research for cinema and women’s history.
