VII Esposizione internazionale d’arte cinematografica (1939)
Joseph Goebbels, the Reich’s Minister of Propaganda, meets the Minister Alfieri and Count Volpi di Misurata. International tension is high and American films are excluded from the programme; several American stars come to the Venice Film Festival anyway. The announcer crows: “Ladies and gentleman, we were born in the aftermath of silent film, we witnessed the triumph of sound, and we will witness the triumph of colour!”
