ABOUT THE FILM
Il Grido
(The Cry)


The story of a factory worker, Aldo, is pieced together from his fleeting encounters as he wanders through the dreary landscape of the Po valley. Deserted by the mother of his child, he tries to escape the ruins of his life while searching for some undefined solace. When he finally returns home, he is more despairing than before. The woman has a new man and a new child, while his former colleagues are on stike in protest against the arrival of an American base nearby. An early attempt to forge connections between the personal and the political, most evident in the contrast between Aldo's despair and the collective action of his comrades.
