Two Forgotten Boxes - a trip to Vietnam

Review

Some life experiences are good to remember, and others are not. This film deals with a journey to North Vietnam at war with the U.S. between 1965 and 1966, a journey that Cecilia Mangini, the protagonist of the story, finds hard to remember, still an open wound because she was supposed to shoot, with Lino Del Fra, a documentary film that was never made. After more than fifty years a great little discovery of two forgotten boxes turns out to be an opportunity to narrate that journey in a short film that slowly recovers a thread of memory by assembling long-forgotten words and images. It is a kind of war against herself, between saying and not saying, remembering and not remembering.
