1975 (C20th)
Location: Rome, Italy Creator: Luigi Perelli The film was made on the occasion of a major event organized by the Italian Communist Youth Federation in February 1975 at the Palazzo dello Sport in Rome, where fifteen thousand influx spectators to follow and participate in the performance of singers, actors, musicians and Italian and foreign musical complexes including: Ivan Della Mea, Paolo Pietrangeli, Giovanna Marini, Paolo Ciarchi, Ernesto Bassignano, the Amerikanta, Rosa Balistreri, Maria Carta, Ines Carmona, Luigi Nono, Giorgio Gaslini, Mario Schiano, Bruno Cirino, Gian Maria Volonté, Luigi Proietti, Stefano Satta Flores; and the Inti Illimani and the Quilapayun, who testified with their songs and music about fascist repression in Chile and the popular struggle against the military dictatorship. With its intertwining of songs, performances of contemporary music and free jazz, acting interventions by actors, and with a background theme linked to the great democratic battles of recent years, “Music for freedom” is proposed as a musical film show of a kind completely different from television musicals, conditioned by the cultural industry and characterized by the tendency to pure evasion. 01.
