Description

ITALICS visits personal histories of Italian Americans as well as the conditions all too real in present-day Italy. Genealogist Mary Tedesco of Origins Italy joins us in our studio to unlock the door to knowing from whence we came. Director Francesco Munzi talks about his latest film, “Black Souls (Anime nere),” in which a Calabrian family struggles with its place in society - grappling between retaining its power via the ‘ndrangheta and breaking free from archaically violent ways in a society that doesn’t leave much choice.
