For over a decade challenging the policy of erasure that burns and haunts the memory of national cinema, Eugenio Puppo revisits the emergence of one of the most notorious generations of filmmakers in the country, exploring the close and unusual relationship between a papal encyclical and the emergence of Cinema Marginal. Comprised of a rich collection of archival material and images, the film becomes a genuine time capsule, echoing in the present (in a direct nod to the future) the confrontational voices and images of Reichenbach, Sganzerla, Mojica, and many others. *(C.M)
