Special screening, released for the first time; afterwards there will be a Q&A with the author
Filmed between 2013-2016, Terre impure is the journey of a Calabrian journalist who, emigrated for twenty years, returns to her homeland to follow Carolina Girasole and Elisabetta Tripodi’s affairs. The two ex-mayors of Isola Capo Rizzuto and Rosarno, once symbol of the hope for redemption, have disappeared off the political scene. This is the first film reconstructing Carolina Girasole’s judicialcase, absolved in the judgment at first instance from the accusation of buying votes from the clans. The stories of these two women who have been followed for three years, are intertwined with the ones of two small towns considered to be strongholds of the ‘Ndrangheta, against a backdrop of intimidations, confiscated properties, exploitation of migrants. “They have been problematic because they didn’t fear calling the ‘ndrangheta by its name”, says the writer Francesca Viscone. What is there left of this fragile Spring? A necessary reawakening to the memory of women politics in a region imbued with a permanent lack of clarity regarding information.
