Lavorare Con Lentezza (Work Slowly)
Duration 111 minutes
Directed by Guido Chiesa
A Feature film from Italy about the rebellions in Bologna in the
late 70's and the story of the free radio Radio Alice.
Italy. The 70's. Along with the birth of a free Radio in Bologna (Radio
Alice) and the political developments of the radical Italian left, two
young men get in touch with a new consciousness, which is spreading among
the youth. Getting by daily and refusal of given destiny is their way of
life, while tragedies surround them. (During a rally a student is shot
to death in front of them (real story), a friend of them is sent to
prison for the beating up of a moneylender. Directed with a subtle
touch, no rhetoric, no stereotype. There's no judgment, the only aim is
just to tell a story. The Italian Seventies are righteously described
without taboo. Just watch it and have a two-hours-real-good-time!
Radio Alice was an Italian free radio broadcasting from Bologna at the end of the 1970s. It started transmitting on February 9, 1976 using an ex-military transmitter on a frequency of 100.6 MHz. The station was closed by the carabinieri on March 12, 1977. Radio Alice then re-opened again for two years and became politically aligned with the autonomism movement. After closure, the frequency was then given by the state to Radio Radicale. Radio Alice was the first Italian radio station to allow listeners to call in and go on-air. The station output covered a myriad of subjects: labor protests, poetry, yoga lessons, political analysis, love declarations, cooking recipes, Jefferson Airplane, Area or Beethoven music. Participants in the station included Franco "Bifo" Berardi, Maurizio Torrealta and Filippo Scozzari. In 2002 some former staff members participated in the founding of Orfeo TV, the first Telestreet pirate TV.
