Celebrating International Women’s Day: Vogliamo anche le rose (dir. Alina Marazzi, 2007)

Vogliamo anche le rose is a tribute to the tenacity of women of the 60s and 70s sexual revolution and feminist movement in Italy. Alina Marazzi’s documentary celebrates women who fought for a world where both essentials, bread and the poetry of roses, could be secured. Archival footage and other visual materials intertwine with life stories three Italian women: Anita, who is struggling with an oppressive father and the strict rules of her Catholic faith; Teresa, who must resort to a heart-breaking illicit abortion; and Valentina, a militant feminist caught between love and her commitment to the movement.

The screening will be introduced by a member of the Italian Department and will be followed by a discussion.
