A documentary that describes true and moving stories that are capable of bringing important aspects of our time to light. Stories where the main players are women and their relationship with their work, because by talking about work we are talking about the human and civil conditions that we experience.
It's the story of two women; we could say that both are very special women in their own field, women who have acted in a personal and virtuous way during the economic and moral crisis that we are experiencing.
The first is ROSA and she is a factory worker at “Tacconi Sud” in Latina. She lead 28 of her colleagues in an active and civil resistance; occupying the factory (565 days) after receiving letters of redundancy. We filmed the lives of these women from inside the factory; keeping the company alive and looking after it being their unique way of resistance, a company that was practically abandoned by its owners. Rosa kept a diary of this occupation on Facebook, a diary that is rich in reflections and thoughts, a sort of logbook from the Titanic in which they seemed to be sailing over the last few years. For this reason Rosa has received honours in the news and has been invited onto a number of Italian TV shows to talk about her experiences and the occupation that has been continuing for more than a year.
The other special woman is Margherita, businesswoman and owner of the biscuit factory Dogliani of Carrara, who decided to use a different entrepreneurial model based on a civil relationship with employees who have the possibility of participating in cultural workshops and the organisation of a festival that has been held in the factory car park for 6 years. This festival involves actors, philosophers and writers who discuss a different theme each year, the most recent was that of “wishes”.
“This factory makes cakes and produces thoughts” says the slogan written on the entrance of the building; a slogan that clearly summarises Margherita’s goal.
These two women meet, they meet each other first on Facebook (where Margherita was able to read and appreciate Rosa’s diary) and then each one visits the factory of the other with the resulting reflections and sensations.
