Fabrica in Taranto

On Monday, April 10, the documentary “La Gente Resta” will be presented for the first time in Taranto as part of the last event of the movie program “Girati a Taranto”.

Based on an idea by Lea Dicursi, directed by Maria Tilli, screenplay by Laura Grimaldi, the docu-film is produced by Fabrica with RaiCinema.

It tells the story of a family in Tamburi, a suburb of Taranto (Puglia, Southern Italy), and their decision to not move away from their native land.

Tamburi is the most polluted district in Italy. It’s home to ILVA, the largest steelmaking plant in Europe, whose smokestacks loom over the tiny, almost fresh-water gulf called Mar Piccolo. It’s also the lifelong home of the Resta brothers: Cosimo, Tonino and Giuseppe, three lives spent between the sea and their factory jobs, between fear for their health and the desire to stay where they were born.

The movie program, dedicated to the films that have seen the Ionic town as a movie set, is organized by Associazione Terra, under the artistic direction of Fabrizio Iurlano.

During the evening the film critic Davide Di Giorgio will introduce the topic to the public and the Resta family, guest of the event.
