Clara e le vite immaginarie
Clara Tonelli, Elio Casagrande, Giulia Casagrande, Francesca Fraboni
The discovery of a photo taken at the end of the 1930s is the starting point as we travel through Clara's past. While her memory becomes ever more frail, her young granddaughter attemps to reconstruct her childhood and youth in fascist Italy with the help of images that ignite the memory of relentless film buff. Using vintage footage that resonates with the lives of today's grandparents, the film probes the sense of becoming a woman in an era dominated by great turmoil. An era in which cinematographic images, combined with propaganda influenced the identity of an entire generation.
