Barbarossa and the Towers of Italy

Director: Tony Olmetti Schweikle.
The program is about “Saracen Pirates,” from countries around the Mediterranean Sea, and their attacks on the coastal cities of southern Italy to capture men, women and children for the slave markets of North Africa. Also filmed in vivid detail are some of the thousands of Watchtowers that were built along the shores of the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Adriatic Seas. Hundreds have withstood the assault of man and nature and can be visited today. The history of these towers and the people who manned them has never been told. All re-enactments were filmed at the sites of theses pirate attacks. Most of the extras are descended from survivors of these attacks. The time period of Pirate attacks takes place in the 1500’s. Other portions of the program cover 1,000 years of Mediterranean history, beginning with the first Watchtowers built on the island of Sardegna, circa 1500BC The program ends with the attack on the village of Ispani in 1532 by Pasha Heyreddin, (Barbarossa.) Heyreddin was an Admiral in the Ottoman Empire who attacked many cities in Italy, including Capri, where there is today a castle built by him. The video portion of the program was filmed in Italy with HD P2 cameras. All re-enactment scenes were filmed by the production company.

“EASTWARDS” is the result of a long journey. Bosnia is the focus, with its cumbersome past and its present as much uncertain as controversial. Sarajevo, Mostar, Srebrenica, different solicitations coming out meeting people and their present and past history. Sarajevo is the capital. The memory became its political structure, and lights up consequent opportunities to reflection and debate. Mostar is symbolized by the Old Bridge, heart of a slow beat of a social and political life which fails to heat the peripheral wings of the city still shattered in the reality of ghettos, Croatians and Muslims. And finally Srebrenica, the town of women, the city of pain. 12,000 dead (institutionally they say 8372, but in reality missing people is 4000 more). Every year on 11th of July it takes place the big ceremony for the burying of the hundreds of bodies still found in mass graves newly identified. Hatidza Mehmedovic' is from Srebrenica, she is the main character of the movie. Only she could transmit the emotional charge affecting the director because of her ability to bear mourning (during the genocide of 1995 she lost her only two children, her husband, her brothers, her father..)
