Thursday 16 April 2020, Online: Adriana Monti Scoula Senza Fine (1983)

As part of Brighton CCA’s online exhibition COMMUNAL two films from the Cinenova collection will be screened online within their Front Room film programme.

The first of these screening is:

Scuola Senza Fine –  Adriana Monti (Italy, 1983, 40 minutes)

Scuola Senza Fine (School Without End) was directed by Adriana Monti in collaboration with students from the adult education 150 Hour Secondary School diploma course with whom she had been working for a year. The 150 Hours Courses were an educational experiment implemented in Italy beginning in 1974, available to factory workers and farmers initially, and expanding to include women a couple of years later. The courses were non-vocational; they were not intended to improve one’s productivity at work, but rather to allow for personal and collective growth. The courses sought to help workers reflect not only upon their working conditions but also on their lives.

Book to watch online here – the link will be sent out and available to watch for 24 hours on Thursday 16 April 2020
