The Consulate General of Italy in Philadelphia and The America-Italy Society of Philadelphia present:
(Good Morning, Night)
By Marco Bellocchio, 2003, 106’
In Italian with English subtitles
Presented by Claudia Consolati, Ph.D. Candidate in Italian and Cinema Studies at the University of Pennsylvania
The 1978 kidnapping of Aldo Moro, former Prime Minister of Italy and leader of the Christian Democratic Party, is seen from the perspective of one of his assailants, a young woman (Maya Sansa) in the ranks of the Red Brigades who suffers doubts about the plan.
After a first documentary on the same topic, Sogni infranti (Broken Dreams, 1995), renowned director Marco Bellocchio (Vincere, The Wedding Director, My Mother’s Smile, The Nanny) directed this compelling film, which has received several nominations and prizes at numerous international festivals.
Thought-provoking and beautiful, Buongiorno, notte invites the viewer to reflect on the complex Italian history of the “Years of Lead” in the 70s and on their effects on Italian politics and society.
