Felice chi è diverso/Happy to be different

il disegno del manifesto è di Jean Cocteau per gentile concessione del COMITE´ JEAN COCTEAU Happy to be different a film documentary by GIANNI AMELIO “Happy being different if one is different. But woe betide being different if one is ordinary”! This poem by Sandro Penna guides us in a secret Italy that has never before been unveiled by a film camera that wants to investigate reality and not fiction. It’s Italy’s homosexual world as  lived  in the 20th  century, from the start to the 1980s, when, following  certain American movements, the first attempts of  “liberation” started spreading. In the documentary we hear the stories of those who directly experienced the burden of being  different,  almost  invariably  obstructed  by  their  own  family,  mocked  at school, excluded by “normal” society. These people, who are now getting on in years, remember how they lived this situation under Fascism and then in the Second World War, when a veil of silence was drawn over the topic, and people lived in fear and repression. Stories  gathered  in  various  parts  of  Italy, … Read more »
