“Once upon a time in China…and I was there, too”
(Italia/Cina 2012, 32′, in Italian w/ English subtitles)
Followed by a Discussion with Director Nino Azzarello
A documentary on the daily life of Chinese society during the years of the Cultural Revolution, observed by an Italian who lived two years during this crucial period of the history of the People’s Republic. In recent years, the director returned to the most loved places of this extraordinary country in search of testimonies from Chinese people who lived during the same period. Thanks to the spontaneity and amateur nature of the documentary, it remains free and non-judgmental.
From 1970-1972, Mr. Nino Azzarello worked in Beijing with the Italian Trade Commission.
