ROME — Italy’s Parliament convened Friday for the first time since anti-establishment forces shattered the old-line political system, and it remains unclear who will lead the country. But one victor is certain: the Kremlin.
Both the populist Five Star Movement and the far-right League – the two parties likeliest to bring together a ruling coalition — have called for a swift end to European sanctions against Russia. Both want to reorient the NATO defense alliance away from its increasingly robust stance in Eastern Europe, where it has stationed troops and tanks to defend against a possible conflict with the Kremlin. And both say Russia is a valuable partner in the global fight against terrorism in Syria and elsewhere.

“In 1980, Depardon visited San Clemente, a psychiatric clinic situated on an island in the Venice lagoon, where he had previously shot a series of photos. This time he brought his movie camera. Over ten days, he filmed daily life within the asylum shortly before it was closed down and created a unique piece of cinema, a reference point in the field of documentaries, which offers an insight into a world that is normally closed to us. As a filmmaker, Depardon’s usual method of disappearing like a chameleon in the landscape doesn’t work here. He and his camera become an active part of the film as the inmates meet him with either aggression or indifference. Through long takes and without explanatory commentary, SAN CLEMENTE shows the preparations for life in freedom from the patients’ perspective.” –VIENNALE
