Synopsis

A portrait of the housewife figure and domestic work in post-World War II Italy. Fascism promoted two images of the housewife: the middle-class, urban homemaker, inspired by American conceptions of "home economics," and the "rural farmwife" destined to prevail during the thirties. These 2 images offer both continuity & change in the image of the housewife after 1945. This 'short' autobiography of Teresa and Costante Toffoli, from the Northern Italian Veneto Region, previously, the poorest area of Italy, which has undergone tremendous growth and industrialization since the 2nd World War bears witness to change by the story she tells of her past life : an elegy of her steady values, hard work, her relation to her family and environment, a reflection both touching and melancholic. She speaks of her role as a woman, mother, and wife in an expressive, yet unified emotion and her problems of existing in a time peppered with historical labor events that took place in Northern Italy this century.

Director

Helen Dobrensky has produced several art-house shorts including the acclaimed 'SIYAMO'. Irela Nuñez, residing in Rome, is currently working on a film about her life-long collection of early film material and photos of her native country, Peru.
