[ 38 min, 2007 ]
by Michael Herzfeld
This film explores the nostalgia and sense of loss in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood in the heart of old Rome.
In the solemn shadows of the Colosseum and the Forum, men lament the changes that challenge their pride as artisans and as children of these historic streets but also recall and revisit local scandals and grand history alike with the buoyant irony, the irrepressible curiosity, and the delicious impudence that have sustained them through years of struggle against power and poverty.
Monti Moments premieres April 16th, 2007 at the Harvard-Yenching auditorium, rm#18, in Cambridge, MA.
