Essere Donne
Un film di Cecilia Mangini

Riservato

“Come accade sempre con i lavori che sono stati un’esperienza forte e una scoperta di valore esistenziale, sono molto legata a Essere donne. L’esperienza è stata la fabbrica, e nella fabbrica la catena di montaggio, la parcellizzazione, i tempi stretti, la verifica della lezione gramsciana sul fordismo. La scoperta è stato l’incontro con le donne ‘agite’ dalla fabbrica, dal lavoro contadino, dalla famiglia, dal rapporto con la loro condizione negata, nel momento iniziale del loro (e mio) confuso interrogarsi sulla necessità del cambiamento”
Cecilia Mangini

As is always the case with works that constituted a powerful experience and a discovery of an existential nature, I remain very close to Essere donne. In this case, the experience was that of the factory, and within the factory the production line, the compartmentalisation, the short timescales, the confirmation of Gramsci’s teachings on Fordism. The discovery was that of the women ‘worked’ by the factory, of peasant work, of families, of their relationship to their hopeless situation, in the initial moment of their (and my) confused questioning of the need for change.”
Cecilia Mangini

This documentary is one of the earliest film enquiries on women’s condition in Italy, seen in its different aspects: social, economic, psychological.
Starting from an analysis of the feminine role models proposed by the cultural industry – the movie stars and models in fashion magazines – the film finds its protagonists among real women, of all ages and from all regions: workers in the factories, peasant women, those who do piece-work at home, farm labourers, emigrants, housewives, old women and very young girls who do household work and take care of children while their mothers are out at work; working women who take part in the Unions’ struggles in defense of their jobs, against unemployment, against being fired and against exploitation in the factories and in the countryside as well as against the use of home-based labourers, which violates the laws on the condition of workers; working women who fight for peace, freedom and democracy, together with all democratic and progressive-minded citizens.
