Introduction to the script of the film Scuola senza fine
After I had been working with a particular group of housewives for a year we started shooting the film Scuola senza fine (literally, 'School without end') almost casually, in 1979. I was able to get equipment free of charge and money to pay for the film was made available. The women had taken the '150 Hours' course and had been awarded the completion of secondary school diploma in 1976. But they were reluctant to go back to spending their afternoons ironing or playing cards. So first we devised new seminars on literature, the body and the image.
