Scope and Content

This project series documents The Pig "Carosello Italiano", a film made in the winter of 1967-1968 by Gianni Pettena with archivale footage and shots by Pettena himself. The film is "a comment on the violence of power and consumerism". [1] It consists of a montage of violent scenes, like the Vietnam war, protest demonstrations, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, intersected with images of "mass society's rituals: traffic, shopping and parades in costume"[2].

The project series contains a video recording on VHS of the film, project descriptions in English and in Italian, and a digital version of the film.
