On Friday 20th April at 8pm, we will be showing the film ‘We want roses too’ by Alina Marazzi in partnership with Solidarity Books to coincide with the Dail discussion on X Case Legislation (Wed 18th April). We will host a discussion after the film.
This film is in Italian with English Subtitles.
This stunning visual masterpiece is an exuberant testament to the resolve of women of the ’60s and ’70s sexual revolution and feminist movement in Italy. Acclaimed director Alina Marazzi takes viewers on gorgeous storytelling journey through archival footage, advertisements, and colorful images juxtaposed with the true-life struggles and first person narrations of three diverse Italian women: Anita, who is struggling with an oppressive father and the strict rules of her Catholic faith; Teresa, who must resort to a heartbreaking illicit abortion; and Valentina, a militant feminist caught between love and her commitment to the movement.
