Fellini – La Strada

We watched Fellini’s masterpiece “La  Strada”, a reminder of the time that cinema was considered & treated as the “seventh art”. Looking back from then, we understood what the actual PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) so many young people suffer from now, means. Any act of cruelty or violence that is not digested socially (shared, forgiven, transcended) keeps coming back till it is digested. The many soldiers coming back crippled from the “wars for democracy” the USA keeps waging to store up their illusory empire prove that no society can carry such traumatic burdens.
