Good Morning, Night

Directed by Marco Bellocchio

Veteran director Bellochio´s chilling political drama thoughtfully confronts a convulsive event in recent Italian history – the kidnapping of the former prime minister, Aldo Moro, in 1978. The film is built around five main characters – Moro and the four idealistic Red Brigade terrorists who held him captive for 55 days while his party and the Vatican refused to negotiate. As the stalemate continues, the captors themselves become prisoners, forced to exist in an edgy state of permanent vigilance. Thu 25 Nov, 6.15pm: Introduction This screening will be introduced by Nicoletta McGowan, Senior Lecturer in Italian at the Manchester Metropolitan University.
