On this night we will screen Francesco Rosi’s Hands over the City, a blistering work of social realism and the winner of the 1963 Venice Film Festival Golden Lion. This expose of the politically driven real-estate speculation that has devastated Naples’s civilian landscape moves from a cataclysmic building collapse to the backroom negotiations of civic leaders vying for power in a city council election, laying bare the inner workings of corruption with passion and outrage. 

Marcello Fantuz will be our introductory speaker. He takes special interest in how bottom up initiatives in architecture meets political consensus, and is co-founder of several initiatives in this field.
Fantuz will introduce the film by taking into account this professional background, as well as the contemporary situation in his native country.

This filmnight is part of a dual programme together with the Q&A night 'Failed Architecture #9' on the 26th of September.
