Second screening: Negotiating Amnesia (Alessandra Ferrini, 2015, 29 minutes).

This is the second of two screenings of “How We Remember: Colonialism and Slavery in Contemporary Nonfiction Films.”

Through interviews, archival images, monuments and the analysis of high-school textbooks employed in Italy since 1946, the film shifts through different historical and personal narratives, prompting a reflection on the legacy of the fascist, imperial drive in post-regime Italy. Negotiating Amnesia was supported by and presented at the 56th edition of the Festival dei Popoli, International Documentary Film Festival (Nov-Dec 2015, Florence) and as a collateral exhibition that took place at P.A.C. Le Murate (Florence) [now Murate Art District].

The event is free and open to Brown community members.
