THE PIG "CAROSELLO ITALIANO"
Through a rapid and rhythmic montage of materials shot by the author and archive footage, this film made in the winter of 1967-68 is an ideological judgment on the violence of power and consumerism. Images of the powerful of the time involved in the genocide in Vietnam alternate with others of rituals of mass society, traffic and shopping. For those unwilling to be imprisoned and indoctrinated, the escape route is the one indicated in the final sequence, shot with the actors of Gilberto Giuntini and Mario Pachi’s Teatro Prova, in which the performers find a means of resistance in rebellion and in a series of liberating actions.
