TONY BY ANNA
By Anna Negri
Creative documentary, Italy/France.
Anna, a 50-year-old romantic film director, confronts her 88-year-old father, Toni. Toni is the internationally renowned intellectual and philosopher who inspired the no-global movement, but at the same time the number one public enemy of Italian politics in the “years of lead.” Incarcerated on terrorism charges, he fled to France into exile for 25 years, and Anna and her brother Francesco find themselves as teenagers living alone in Milan, growing up in disarray.
The film reveals how official History can burst into the lives of individuals, changing its course.
