‘La donna nella resistenza’ (Women in Resistance)

(ID Teca: D3117)

This documentary – signed by the then young director Liliana Cavani, destined to a great career – starts from the farewell letter written to her loved ones by the partisan from Bologna, Irma Bandiera, and then provides, through the narrator, some data on the female contribution to the Resistance. Valuable interviews of some of these militants follow on the reasons that led them to take action. The documentary aired on Channel Two on 9th of May 1965, in the 20th anniversary of the Liberation (1965 was a central year to the memory of the Resistance).
