GRAZING THE WALLSFIORANDO IL MURO DOCUMENTARY
ITALY - FRANCE
Directed by Silvia Giralucci and Luca Ricciardi
The grown daughter of an Italian neofascist, who was the first man killed by the Red Brigades terrorist org in the 1970s, goes looking for answers in documentary "Grazing the Wall." Scribe-helmer Silvia Giralucci, who co-directed with Luca Ricciardi, is also the protag, which might explain the lack of critical distance and the makers' difficulty in distinguishing between macro and micro elements. Incomprehensible for anyone without a grounding in the political factions active during the Years of Lead, this pic will only graze on Italo pastures.
