Dead Times is based on a true story. A widow finds two tombs for her husband. A mystery that can only be solved by a shrewd professor and by two unlikely gravediggers. What they find will open the doors to a forgotten past.
Dead Times is an original project that aims to attract interest from a conscious citizenship on the link between the history of the 20th century and the contemporary, focusing on the story of Italian Military Internees (IMI). The IMI were a unique case in history: more than 650,000 Italian Anti-Fascists that, for various reasons, after September 8th 1943, were imprisoned in German, Polish and Greek camps.
Dead Times faces a difficult subjects, playing with lightness and irony. Starting from a dramatic and ignored story, we question ourselves about the loss of memory, both collective and individual, as a pathological disorder. Can a person, or a State, consider itself adult if it has chosen to forget rather than to face its past?
