In 1995, Italian filmmakers Guido Chiesa and Davide Farrario contrasted today's left-wing youth with WW II Resistance fighters in their documentary Materiale Resistente. Continuing in the same vein, the duo was joined by three other documentarians for Partisans, a film exploration of WW II myths and memories. The quintet of filmmakers interviewed surviving partisans and their wives in the town of Correggio in Emilia Romagna. In one sequence, a survivor recalls a country road conflict between partisans and fascists, and this recollection is juxtaposed with a dramatized reenactment of the incident. Shown at the Turin Film Festival.
