'The Red Lands - The forgotten by history' back to Florence

After winning the Best Drama Film 2017 at the Hollywood International Moving Pitcure Film Festival, the official selections at the 8th Jagran Film Festival 2017, at the Naples Film Festival 2017, at the Darbhanga International Film Festival 2018 and the successes of screenings in Italy and Switzerland, ' LeTerre Rosse 'returns to Florence.

Sunday, April 22 at 21.00 the film of the director Giovanni Brancal will screen again at the Cinema The Company of Florence, which in September had hosted the national preview. Taken from the book 'The Renegade' (Ed. Polistampa) by Giuseppe Brancale, ilfilm (produced by Estravagofilm and co-financed by crowfounding) deals with the thorny issue of the post-unitary Brigantage in Basilicata, through the events of some young exgaribaldini who collapsed the dream of redemption linked to the Italian Unity, find themselves victims of abuses and prevarications. Following in particular the path of one of these (GiuseppePrestone) the film analyzes, in a period of about thirty years, the experiences of 'forgotten by history', experiences that have as a common thread the land, understood as homeland, place of origin, but also as a red earth, stained in the struggle for its independence. The point of view is that of the 'last', which history has made it but also suffered, often finding a way out in brigandage or emigration. The Prestone, paying in person, will find a third way.
Although set in the nineteenth century, the film examines a very current and alive theme: that of others 'forgotten' in the fight against oppression, once again emigrants fleeing violence and poverty. Vichiani courses and historical recourses that, remembered through images, can become a valid tool for understanding and deepening.
