About the documentary:
Carrara is the city of marble and the cradle of international anarchism. In the documentary, we see a publisher, a university professor, a sculptor, a historian and a typographer taking the audience on a journey talking about Anarchy, the F.A.I. (Federazione Anarchica Italiana), departing from 1894, through major historical events up until the present. They discuss no-global and new-global movements, unstable labor, warfare, and the environment. Alfonso Nicolazzi, Gigi Di Lembo, Dominique Stroobant, Massimiliano Giorgi and Donato Landini invite us to a world that is often talked about in an awry way – or not talked about at all. The documentary poses critical questions on the relationship between anarchy and violence, anarchy and society, and between anarchy and utopia.
About the director:
Antonio Morabito was born in Carrara in 1972. After graduating as a director in Rome he got an MA degree in script writing from Sorbonne University in Paris. He has made several short films as well a feature film (Cecilia, 1999). He also has worked for Sky and RAI directing various documentary programs.
