Documentary Film Screening/Encounter with Director and Producer

Thursday, 12/2, 2:00 pm
Max Kade Theater

Director Andrea Ciriaci and producer Isaak Liptzin will screen their documentary, If Only I Were that Warrior.

The film is a feature documentary film which won the Italian Golden Globe in 2016 for Best Documentary. It focuses on the Italian occupation of Ethiopia in 1935. Following the recent construction of a monument dedicated to Fascist general Rodolfo Graziani, the film addresses the unpunished war crimes he and others committed in the name of Mussolini’s imperial ambitions. The stories of three characters, filmed in present day Ethiopia, Italy, and the United States, take the audience on a journey through the living memories and the tangible remains of the Italian occupation of Ethiopia — a journey that crosses generations and continents to today, where this often-overlooked legacy still ties the fates of two nations and their people.

After the film screening, there will be a Q&A with the public. Please contact Carla Cornette at with any questions.
