here. Visiting Fulbright Chair Professor Barbara Curli will introduce the 2005 documentary which follows Primo Levi’s adventurous eight-month journey from Auschwitz to Turin in 1945, as first narrated in his 1963 book “La tregua” (“The truce”).
Georgetown's website describes the movie as follows: "Accompanied by Levi’s powerful words and imitating the 'picaresque' style of the book – 'un’Odissea del ritorno movimentata e variopinta' (Italo Calvino) - the movie is a thought-provoking journey through post-communist and post-9/11 Eastern Europe. It presents a vivid picture of the present redefinition of European “borders” and identity in a period of uncertainty and transition – a 'truce,' as Primo Levi would say, in a 'suspended time' and 'suspended space' of Europe’s history."
