A noi rimane il mondo. Wu Ming and the art of radical resistance
A documentary centered on the ramifications of the creative work of Wu Ming, the Italian collective of militant and avant-garde storytellers, and on the experiences emanating from their active engagement in shaping a different narration of the last two decades of Italian underground cultural and political struggle. The story of Wu Ming starts in the 1990s, when, under the pseudonym and visionary project Luther Blissett, they published Q, a historical novel that became a best seller in Italy and was translated into several languages. This documentary delves into the artistic and cultural underground landscape of Italy, taking as its point of departure the collective projects emerging from the blog Giap, like Alpinismo Molotov (ecology and literature), Nicoletta Bourbaki (history and storytelling), Cirenaica Resistances (post-colonial and migration issues), to deliver a collective history of commitment and creative resistance in the Italian cultural, socio-political landscape of the beginning of the 21st Century. Through the voices of Wu Ming and other Italian and European militant writers, musicians and artists, the film adopts Wu Ming’s experimental approach to storytelling to tell stories from the “good” side of Italy.
