Tribute to Cecilia Mangini

Thinking of cinema as a tool of resistance is what Cecilia Mangini has done over seven decades, in her countless documentaries on urgent topics, such as peripheral and marginalized communities, immigration, the roots of fascism or social injustice.

The condition of women is present in several works of the italian filmmaker.

The historical context that she lived over 94 years, marked by the great conflicts and crises of the 20th century in Europe, is observable in her work, whose vision is committed and very intimate with the individual and society.


The first woman to film a documentary in post-war Italy, Cecilia Mangini, who left us at the beginning of this year, has always been a filmmaker committed to the most disadvantaged and the most marginalized and subordinated sections of society.
