(We Want Roses Too)
I/CH 2007 84'
WE WANT ROSES TOO aims to portray the deep change brought on by the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s, visually supported by archival footage of the period, drawn from the most varied sources. The film looks again at recent events from a female point of view, through the first-hand accounts provided by the diaries of three women. The Italy in which these stories unfolded is not as distant in time as it may seem, and its cultural and social conquests not as firmly rooted as one would think. By focusing on the battle for women's rights in Italy, the film addresses the struggles for equal rights worldwide, past and present, in the belief that no battle won can be taken for granted forever.
