On June 6, 1944 Rome's “city of cinema” was requisitioned by Allied Control Commission to house thousands of war refugees. A modernistic movie complex, though profoundly bombed out, was soon transformed into a refugee camp: Italian homeless on one side, an international field on the other – trespass being strictly forbidden. Cinecittà was the destination for people coming from everywhere: the sons and daughters of Italian colonists in Libia, the displaced people of Rome and Monte Cassino’s bombings, the exiled people of Dalmatia, several Jews who had been interned or imprisoned in German lagers. In this documentary, Marco Bertozzi and Noa Steimatsky follow those very refugees walking in nowadays Cinecittà, letting their story emerge as they move along today’s studios and reality shows’ sets.
