RIBELLI BRIGATA PERLASCA
Italy / 1986 / 90'
The film tells the story of a partisan brigade of the "Green Flames" that between 1943 and 1945 operated in the mountains of Vall Sabbia between Trentino and Lake Garda where the Salò Republic had its headquaters. Three survivors of those glorious but sad events relive the facts and emotions of that time, talking personally about places and facts that have remained in history and on people's conscience.
A writer of documentaries, short films, feature films and commercials, he began in 1956 with "La capinera del mulino", to continue during the 1960s with a series of spaghetti westerns. He founded the Ondafilm studio and Ondastudios in Salò, then transformed into the Museo Archivio Audiovisivo Gardesano. In 1986 he returned to the scene of feature film direction with "Ribelli. Brigata Perlasca", and in the last few years has dedicated himself to making films on literary subjects.
