Suddenly, Last Winter

The film will be followed by a Q&A with directors Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi. Moderator is Steven van Lummel (PIP Den Haag).
Suddenly, Last Winter is the story of Gustav and Luca, a happy gay couple. At the end of 2006, the Italian centre-left government proposed legislation that would grant certain rights to unmarried couples, including homosexual couples. The response was an incredible wave of homophobia. Fear now keeps many Italians from coming out of the closet, and violence against gays has increased significantly. Similar to the departure of many young people from Iran, Italy is now seeing its own exodus. Barcelona alone, for example, is home to 70,000 young Italians, many of whom are gay.
