The March on RomeMark Cousins

100 years ago, in late October 1922, fascist Blackshirts led by Mussolini marched to Rome in a grand parade. It was the beginning of Mussolini's fascist regime that would last until 1943. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Mark Cousins (The Story of Film) combines extraordinary archival footage with the story of a working-class woman, played by top actress Alba Rohrwacher, to unravel the dark mystery of fascism in a very dynamic way. Not a classic history lesson, but an extraordinary dissection of where exactly the appeal and danger of fascism lie.
