I cannibali
Cinema made by women

Milan has become a deserted and spectral city; the streets and squares are sown with corpses. The military, equipped for war, are present everywhere, and people walk unperturbed without repairing lifeless bodies. The authorities have ordered that the bodies of dissidents and rebels be exposed in the streets to serve as an example and that another rebellion will not occur again. Antigone is a young woman from the bourgeois family who has lost her brother during the riots. And it revolts, indignantly, against the prohibition of burying the dead. However, nobody wants to help her, nor her relatives, nor her boyfriend Hemón, son of one of the most influential politicians in the country: they all abide by the orders emanating from power. But Antigone meets Tiresias, a young foreigner who speaks a language she doesn't understand, but is willing to help her.

BIOGRAPHY

LILIANA CAVANI

Liliana Cavani (1933) is an Italian film director and screenwriter. She became internationally known after the success of her 1974 feature film Il portiere di notte (The Night Porter). Her films are intellectual and have historical concerns. I Cannibali (The Cannibals, 1969) was Cavani's second film. This work was not very well received by the public, so Cavani returned to television with the series of documentaries I bambini e noi (1970).
