Screening of “In viaggio con Cecilia” by Cecilia Mangini and Mariangela Barbanente

Mariangela Barbanente e Cecilia Mangini © GA&A PRODUCTIONS

In the summer of 2012, the directors Mariangela Barbanente and Cecilia Mangini began a road trip to understand how Puglia, their homeland, which had been the subject of a series of documentaries made by Mangini in the 1960s, had changed. During the same summer, a judge admits that the city of Taranto is hostage to the pollution of the ILVA steelworks and for this reason orders the arrest of the owner Emilio Riva.

“In viaggio con Cecilia” – Italy, 2013, 74 minutes
Directors : Cecilia Mangini and Mariangela Barbanente
Original version whit English subtitles

An important stop on “Cecilia’s Journey” is the city Taranto. Here the filmmakers explore the impact and consequences of the large ILVA steel plant on the environment and the lives of citizens: a theme explored in Alessio Pellicoro’s photographic project “The Waste Land,” currently on display at the Italian Cultural Institute.

This film is part of the ‘Interrail’ cycle, a journey through contemporary European cinema, organized by the EUNIC cluster in Montreal (European National Institutes for Culture).
