Newsreel A Woman in Italy

As a part of this year's symposium East / West Border through Film and History, in cooperation with the èStoria festival, gorizian professor and researcher Anna Di Gianantonio discussed the ever-relevant question of women's role in society during her presentation. With the help of audiovisual material, we show how the status of women began to change for the better in the post-war period in Italy. This moment is perfectly presented by the unique short documentary “A Woman in Italy”, which was created in 1958 as part of the documentary program “La Settimana Incom”.

As part of the multi-year project East / West Border through film and history, a film screening took place on July 18, 2023, at which we showed three films, each in their own way talking about the events and life at the border.


Where is the iron curtain?

The short documentary film by director and screenwriter Mako Sajko focuses on what happened on and along the Yugoslav-Italian border in the 1960s. It describes life and friendly neighborly relations in a border area where the exchange of goods between the two countries takes place almost unhindered in a humorous and light-hearted manner. The documentary dispels myths about the impenetrable and strict border between the then Eastern and Western blocs, which over the years has been called the "Iron Curtain".
