From Vittorio Arrigoni’s book ‘GAZA – Stay Human’
Stay Human - The Reading Movie
Vittorio Arrigoni’s daily diary, the witness of 22 days of massacre during the military operation called ‘Cast Lead‘, unleashed by the Israeli government against the Gaza Strip’s civilians between the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. In those days perished more than 1,200 civilians and over 400 children were murdered.
The historical document of a crime agaist humanity, today still unpunished by the international community.
“If the first casualty of war is truth, our task as human beings is to seek freedom and justice, to exhume and serve it in the most indigestible manner for world public opinion”
- Vittorio Arrigoni (1975 – 2011)
“The movie designed by Renzi and Incorvaia, does not comply with the familiar genres of academic experimentation; it is perhaps more evocative of Straub’s epic magic or, more appropriately maybe, of the poetic/filmic avant-garde works by the Lettrists, the Surrealists or the Situationists who have shattered forever the immaculate conception of the camera/cinema.”
“[...] It is perhaps one of the few Situationist movies of the new Millennium one can speak about without having to rinse off the mouth with soap [...]”
- Pino Bertelli
