Ronny Trocker

Gli Immacolati

The film reconstructs a day of demonstrations which followed the accusation of a 16-year-old girl in Northern Italy who claimed to have been raped by two Romani man. In recreating these events, I was interested by how these demonstrations degenerated into a pogrom. My first question was: what images or voices could narrate such an event?
