Magazzino Italian Art

Magazzino Italian Art Foundation presented the U.S. premiere of Danilo Correale’s award-winning film Diranno che li ho uccisi io (They Will Say I Killed Them). The film draws from Correale’s in-depth research into Italian cinema produced between the fall of fascism and rise of television culture in the 1980s and his subsequent discovery of screenplays that were never realized. Through the reconstruction of fragments of forgotten cinema, Correale investigates different film genres and themes of European colonialism, feminism, class, armed conflict, and religion. Following the film screening, Magazzino Italian Art Foundation hosted a panel discussion responding to the work with the artist, Danilo Correale, project curator and producer Martina Angelotti, artist, writer, and professor Evan Calder Williams, moderated by Italian film specialist Gianluca Pulsoni.
