Marching People.

A look back, at the recent past, to march together with those who fought and defended a vital and fundamental right, today increasingly denied and debased in its ethical meaning: that of work and its dignity. Rumors of struggle, interviews, reflections boil in the fluctuating magma of archive images, to remind us that we are history. An instructive journey, between sacrifices and strikes, solidarity and battles, workers and unions, against inequalities and injustices: words and concepts not to be lost especially today, in the precarious time of the gig economy.


Peter Marcias (Oristano, 1977) is a director and screenwriter. In 2008, after shooting several shorts, he made his debut with Suspended Hours, followed by The Children of His Life (2011), My Destiny (2012), Our Quarantine (2015). His works, presented in the most prestigious international film festivals, testify to a strong interest in a cinema linked to artistic, social and political themes. Among the documentaries he has directed, his 2010 Liliana Cavani was nominated for the 2011 Silver Ribbon – Nastri d’Argento; About Piera (2013), on the figure of the great actress Piera Degli Esposti, received the special Silver Ribbon – Nastro d’Argento in 2014 and was broadcast with great success on Sky Arte; Nilde Iotti, Women’s Turn (2020) was screened as a world premiere at the Giornate degli Autori of the 77th Venice Film Festival.
