The initiative was launched in May, within the broader framework of the Tirana International Film Festival and the first edition of DocuTIFF. On that occasion, a first public meeting and discussion was held at the Black Box Theater on various aspects of his work.

La Rabbia (The Anger)
PDF Print E-mail



Documentary | Italy | 1963 | 78’



“La Rabbia” employs documentary footage and accompanying commentary to attempt to answer the existential question, Why are our lives character-ized by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts, and the directors of these respective sections, leſt-wing

P. P. Pasolini and conservative G. Guareschi, offer the viewer contrasting analyses of and prescriptions for modern society. Part I, by Pasolini, is a denunciation of the offenses of Western culture, particularly those against colonized Africa. It is at the same time a chronicle of the liberation

and independence of the former African colonies, portraying these peoples as the new protagonists of the world stage, holding up Marxism as their “salvation,” and suggesting that their “innocent ferocity” will be the new religion of the era.
