Universale Economica Feltrinelli Film, in collaboration with l’AIACE di Torino, has made it possible for Italian readers to enjoy the fascinating script of Chris Marker’s Le fond de l’air est rouge. Translated by Massimo Manisco with a preface by Goffredo Fofi, Scene Della Terza Guerra Mondiale 1967-1977 [Le fond de l’air est rouge] tries to evoke, summarize and somehow explain ten years of history of revolutionary struggles, from 1967 to 1977.
