The Big Hole

Il Grande Buco" is a creative documentary that, starting from the personal history of the author, will open to a collective and generational dimension.Intermingling the use of private and historical archive images with images shot in the present time, the film traces a subjective journey within the left-wing social movements in Italy, from the 1960s until today. The hole between the two rooms of the new house where the two authors live, is the point from which all their thoughts are born.The choice to have or not to have a child becomes the pretext to represent the disorientation of a whole generation (that of the thirty-year-olds today) facing the future.
