Satirist Sabina Guzzanti’s controversial documentary examines the aftermath of an April 2009 earthquake that devastated the historic city of L’Aquila, the capital of Italy’s wildly beautiful region of Abruzzo. A kind of Italian Michael Moore, Guzzanti shows how the disaster was used by Berlusconi and his cronies for political and financial gain.
