Rossella Nisio

The Price for Fire

Animation | hdv | couleur | 18:40 | Italie, Pays-Bas | 2021

Against the backdrop of a vacant house, two voices pursue the shadows of 1968 and its aftermath: Drifter, brooding over the revolution that never came, and his unnamed comrade, who addresses him from the ranks of a funeral procession. The film is based on the events surrounding the death of M.A., a left-wing activist.
