Il Trasloco (Moving Out of the Future) is an independent documentary from 1991, which tells the story of the Italian Autonomia movement of the 1970s. Set entirely in the flat that used to be the unofficial headquarters of the movement, and narrated by Franco “Bifo” Berardi, the film is a deeply personal account of the lives of those involved.
The translation and subtitling of this film is by Federico Campagna (Through Europe) and Richard John Jones (Auto Italia South East). Federico Campagna and Richard John Jones will be introducing the film.
sunday, learn-in 20.5. (10:00)
The workshop « Moving Out of Il Tralsoco » will discuss some of the key concepts present in the documentary Il Trasloco. It will depart from that point, in order to attempt a critical exploration of contemporary issues of collectivity, creativity and emancipation. The nature of the workshop will be open and collaborative.
