Cork Feminista screened this movie with Solidarity Books and we would highly recommend it! If you get a chance to check it out, you should!
Join us in Solidarity Books this Sunday Dec. 20th at 3pm, for a Matinee showing of ‘We Want Roses Too’ (2007) 84 mins, Dir. Alina Marazzi
Film description follows :
‘We want bread but we want roses too!’ Alina Marazzi’s documentary aims to portray the deep change brought on by the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s.
The film looks again at recent events from a female point of view, through the first-hand accounts provided by the diaries of three women.
Rather than focus on the alleged objectivity of facts, the film gives space to a chorus of voices that narrate those events in first person, visually supported by archival footage of the period, drawn from the most varied sources – institutional, public, militant and private.
