Arrakis

by Andrea Di Nardo Documentary Italia/Italy 2008 23'

Arrakis is a poetic documentary-tribute to the places and victims of industrial progress in Italy. Scenes of closed factories provide the backdrop to the personal story of Silvestro Capelli, former worker at the Breda Foundry, Sesto San Giovanni, who underwent a laryngectomy for a tumor caused by asbestos exposure. Like many others, he is fighting a social and legal battle with simple citizens on the one side and the institutions on the other. Capelli said, "Everyone knew but no one spoke out. The unions knew, the management knew, the local health board knew: everyone knew except the workers."<%YOUTUBE=9UoI5CLIHkU%>
