THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL
WE WANT ROSES TOO


Country: Italy
Year: 2007
Duration: 85'
Direction: Alina Marazzi
Editor: Ilaria Fraioli

Sinopsis

The feminist slogan “We want bread, but we want roses too,” was first chanted by thousands of striking female textile workers in Massachusetts in 1912. Sharing in their spirit, Marazzi’s vibrant film portrays the impact of the 1960s and 1970s sexual revolution and feminist movement in Italy. A gorgeous journey through archival footage, advertisements, and colourful images juxtaposed with the true-life struggles and diaries of three Italian women fighting for independence and freedom. An ironical, critical collage where personal struggles become political arguments to deconstruct an oppressive society.
