Vogliamo anche le rose (84')
by Alina Marazzi
Italy, Swizterland, 2007

We Want Roses Too aims to portray the deep change brought on by the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s. The film looks again at recent events from a female point of view, through the first-hand accounts provided by the diaries of three women. Rather than focus on the alleged objectivity of facts, the film gives space to a chorus of voices that narrate those events in first person, visually supported by archival footage of the period, drawn from the most varied sources - institutional, public, militant and private. Anita, Teresa and Valentina come from different Italian regions and different social backgrounds, but share the same feelings: they no longer feel part of a society based on the patriarchal family, on the power of "husbands" and on the supremacy of males, which requires them to be efficient mothers, obedient wives and virtuous daughters.
“In this film, I chose to examine the history of women in Italy from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s in order to relate it to our current present so charged with conflicts and contradictions; I did this with the intention of offering food for thought on issues that remain partially unsolved, or are even radically challenged today.” Alina Marazzi
