CON I MESSAGGI TRA I CAPELLI
Ragazze della Resistenza Trevigiana
Regia | Direction: Chiara Andrich
Produzione | Production: Associazione rEsistenze – Memoria e storia delle donne in Veneto
Documentario, 60′, DV, Italia, 2015
The documentary tells the history of the Italian resistance in Treviso through the testimonies of women who took part in this movement, as messengers or fighters, from September 8, 1943. The reasons of their choice, their strategies, actions and emotions, dramas, their joy of liberation, their expectations and disappointments. An unusual perspective of the Resistance movement emerges from the documentary, made of a daily and “natural” heroism, founded on acts of solidarity and difficult choices that in some cases caused sufferings and humiliation, but that represented a path of personal freedom.
