BIMBA COL PUGNO CHIUSO (LITTLE GIRL WITH IRON FIST)

Giovanna Marturano is 101 years old. She is an antifascist, a partisan and a feminist.
LITTLE GIRL WITH IRON FIST narrates Giovanna's life, from her earliest memories when as a child living in Rome she witnessed the rise of fascism in 1922, till the present.
She has lived a long and eventful life against injustice and oppression because, she argues: “You can only but struggle, that's a fact...”.

Two other features make this documentary unique. First, it is an animated documentary and second it is a grass-root production. As a result of a crowdfunding campaign throughout Italy, 441 individuals and groups have pooled their resources together thus making this project possible.

A century of Italian history is here narrated by a young 101 years old woman with irony and wit.
