These are times of fear and social and political unrest. History repeating itself? With ‘Le Pantere della Polizia Italiana’ CineCars digs deep into the origin of the 20th century western society.
Society as we know it is being threatened by mechanisms we individuals can’t grasp. In 2016 the CineCars community made its very first longer documentary. A movie on the rise of modern Italy in post second world war Europe. An intriguing story on the impact of fear and terror on a society in full expansion. On geo-political development, crime and not least the role of the fast growing automobility. Because we should take lessons out of the things that passed
‘Le Pantere della Polizia Italiana’ is a 34 minute documentary on the automobilisation of the Italian state police. The story of a Europe slowly getting back on its feet, through the eyes of those whose task was to make sure all of this happened within the right margins. The changes, the effects and most importantly the choices made to keep up with the speeding train called progress. ‘Le Pantere’ tells the story on the mythical law enforcers and the often even more legendary equipment they were supposed to perform their quickly changing task with. It’s a movie that requires reflection. On history as well as on our future.
For the very first time the CineCars community encountered on a venture like this. Idea, contacts, financing and realisation were all taken care of within the community. Unique, but rest assured, it won’t be our last. The entire organisation of the movies production was a steep learning curve. Steep, but very provocative as well. The end result is there to prove it. The time has come to share the result of our work with the world.
Up until now the integral version of ‘Le Pantere della Polizia Italiana’ has been unique to the invitees of the live premiere in early june of this year and the community followers that signed in for the simultaneously shown livestream. Thats why today we proudly present our best ever Christmas present: ‘Le Pantere della Polizia Italiana’. Full documentary in High Definition. Italian spoken, subtitled in Dutch and English. Dim the lights, fill your glasses and enjoy the message of hope and perseverance the Italian state police has in store for you.
