The show

The last chapter of the review collects some of the deepest reflections and reinterpretations of the history of the twentieth century, from totalitarianisms to the conquests of the colonial empires.

The analytical chamber, invented by the artists, has investigated hundreds of amateur films, documentation, propaganda over the years, recovered in historical archives such as that of Luca Comerio, official filmmaker of the Great War. The works African Diary and Visions of the Desert show the gaze on the 'different' of the first European explorers traveling to Africa, the genesis of an unstoppable conquest of peoples and territories of which the film Images d'Orient - Tourisme Vandale, tells us the most extreme.

The other films, different narratives of the dictatorship in the first half of the twentieth century, bring back to the present the many faces of power and violence, little-known stories such as the atrocities of Italian colonialism in Ethiopia, the invasion of the Balkans by Nazi troops and the loss of freedom of expression under Stalin's dictatorship. These images, slow and contrasting, poetic and brutal at the same time, find a key to understanding in the work Criminal Animals, in its metaphorical representation of human nature and the law of the strongest.
