"We the Living"
Directed by Goffredo Alessandrini
This Italian war-time
production of the classic novel of Ayn Rand, the author of Fountainhead and Atlas
Shrugged, is set in Russia of the early 1920's and follows Kira (Alida Valli) as she
gradually copes with Russia's sweeping social and ideological changes in the wake of the
Revolution. Literally lost for many years, this film was only recently found by Ayn Rand's
supporters in Rome, and re-constructed. "One of the most exciting movies to come
along in years. A moving epic in the tradition of Gone with the Wind" (Boston
Globe). Italian with English subtitles.
