Documentary


A film about the Anglo-American occupation of Naples, Italy. This historical deconstruction of a military occupation portrays an amazing and turbulent era in history. During the period 1943-1948 the city of Naples packed more in than most cities manage in a century.

Sleaze, sex, corruption, the Second World War, the Cold War, a communist uprising, the evacuation of the entire city, an outbreak of syphillis and typhoid, the first mission of the CIA and the rise of the Camorra, Naples' very own Mafia.

Through a combination of archive material contemporary footage and interviews with people that lived through it, this feature length documentary reflects the city's character -- mad, funny and yet always touched by tragedy.
