Movie Night | The Swing Girls (Italy, 2010)
May 2, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Dir. Maurizio Zaccaro | Italy, 2010 | 210 min.
Memorable successes are broadcast far and wide: “C’è un’orchestra sincopata,” “Tulipan,” ” Maramao perché sei morto ” and many others. Because of the Jewish origin of their mother and despite their successes and fame, the Trio is cancelled from all radio programmes and dismissed by the EIAR.
The movie is based on original research by Gabriele Eschenazi, author of Le regine dello swing. Il Trio Lescano: una storia fra cronaca e costume (2010).
The screening will be introduced by dr. Francesco Spagnolo, Curator of The Magnes Collection and Lecturer in the Department of Music at UC Berkeley, an authority in the study of Jewish music in Italy, and a host for Italian National Radio (RAI) in Rome.
