Anita Ekberg warming up on the set of La Dolce Vita after wading in the Trevi Fountain (1959) (via)
“Anita Ekberg was a glorious apparition! She was like phosphorus, an extraterrestrial with a lunar pallor in her face and hair. It’s been a long time since I saw Anita. Watching her weather so many seasons as she has…I particularly appreciate her because in one of my films, a filmetto called Intervista, I narrated a visit with Mastroianni to her villa in the country. She’s a woman of a certain age who’s put on weight, who lives with her dogs and ducks, like a happy peasant.
And I saw she’d aged gracefully, a tranquil aging, sober, wise…She’s no longer the glorious diva, the Olympian she once was but she seems to me a beautiful example of serenity.”
I see no real narrative on here or in the media discussing the plight of the Palestinians. The media only show the Israeli side which is more often than not a blatant lie. These images illustrate the reality for the people of Palestine in the face of Israel aggression. This is no war. This is genocide.
The script above is from a US press conference where a journalist asks a White House official if Gazans are allowed to defend themselves. The answer given is an indication as to just how biased this conflict really is. The question is simply tossed aside and avoided.
The Gaza strip is being bombarded from Land, Sea and air right now by Israeli occupation forces. So far 90 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds injured. Not a single Israeli has been injured. This is no war. This is genocide.
