This long-forgotten documentary by Italian master Bernardo Bertolucci arrived sandwiched in-between two masterpieces, The Conformist (1970) and Last Tango in Paris (1972). A propagandistic montage film made to coincide with the Roman elections of '71, it presents a series of Marxist-themed images designed to call attention to the wretched hygiene in Italy and Italian suburban devastation in general. Bertolucci shot much of it in a hospital before being forced to leave the premises; he later projected it outside, on the walls of an Italian building, to make a gutsy political statement.
