Description Based on a true story of Giuseppi Pinelli, an anarchist railwayman who was arrested on suspicion of the bombing of the Agricultural Bank in Milan in 1969. After four days of interrogation in police headquarters, Pinelli "fell " out of a fourth floor window and died. The Police, of course, claimed that the death was an accident. This satire raises the question of corruption and brutality in the police, the liability of the judicial system, the exploitation of the media, class privilege and whether or not anarchists can fly.
