The documentary Z 32 centres on the testimony of one of the participants, a young man in search of redemption from his guilt, flanked in the film by his girlfriend, who has never forgiven him for his actions. Both their faces are hidden by masks - which were digitally created in post-production - and only their darting eyes are visible. The testimony of the young former soldier is interspersed with scenes, in which the director himself, accompanied by an orchestra, sings Brechtian-inspired songs about all the dilemmas he faces: Does forgiveness mean anything? Can films still be politically engaged? Is it possible to change the world with a film? (Camillo de Marco)
