Fortini/Cani

Italy, France, 1976
Documentary

Synopsis

Communist writer Franco Fortini’s readings from The Dogs of Sinai are heard over images of Italian landscapes where partisans clashed with fascists, a place marked by violence and counterposed with his observations on Israel after the Six Day War, and his reflections on his Jewish heritage.

Fortini/Cani Directed by Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub

Critics reviews

Like all of Straub-Huillet’s movies, this astonishingly combative film follows an internal rhythm born out of the particulars of landscape, of speech, and of the physiognomies of its actors.
