The German Commandant of the city causes a turmoil in the Jewish community by offering them what seems to be an expensive way out of imprisonment and death. If the Jews can give him 100 hundred pounds in gold, he will spare their lives and not deport them to the death camps. One Jewish shoemaker (Gerard Blain) is definitely against the idea, but his brethren are confused and at odds with what to do. A subplot has a young Jewish woman, Giulia (Anna Maria Ferrero) falling in love with a Catholic and then converting - though ultimately not deserting her cultural and ethnic roots.

Historical fiction

With barbarians at the gate and enemies within, two men must fight for the soul of the Republic and the greatest empire in the world. A cave hacked out of the rock, lit by flickering torches - two young boys appeal to the famed Roman oracle for a glimpse into their future. The Sybil draws a blood-red shape of an eagle with wings outstretched. An omen of death. As they flee from the cave in fear, Aulus and Lucius make an oath of loyalty until death. An oath that will be tested in the years to come. Thirty years on and Aulus, now Rome's most successful general, faces his toughest battle. Barbarian rebels have captured his wife, and are demanding the withdrawal of Roman legions from their land in return for her life. It is unthinkable for Aulus to agree, and he fears her life must be forfeit to Rome.

Documentary/Architecture History | Authors: Leonardo Tiberi and Leonardo Ciacci

The newsreels of the time are a testimony to it: the city is a gigantic construction yard; new buildings rise next to the demolitions in the heart of Rome and the Fascist regime adopts new architectural styles and transforms the city. The documentary La Roma di Mussolini, by Leonardo Tiberi and Leonardo Ciacci, aided by footage of the Istituto Luce and maps and drawings of the time, describes XX century Rome, a monumental city opposed to the ancient and medieval one. And yet Mussolini, and his ‘demolishing fury’ take on older city plans, started or laid out back in 1800s. Republican Italy indeed did the same with projects that have begun under the Fascist regime.

La studentessa d'arte Karou ha finalmente le risposte che ha sempre cercato. Sa chi è e cosa è. Ma, insieme a questa scoperta, un'altra verità affiora in superficie, una realtà che la ragazza farebbe di tutto pur di ignorare: ha amato un ragazzo che le è nemico, lui l'ha tradita e per questo il suo mondo è sconvolto. Ora, in una kasbah dimenticata nel deserto del Marocco, Karou e i suoi alleati si preparano a uno scontro definitivo contro l'armata dei serafini e sotto la luce delle stelle plasmano creature di potente forza distruttiva. Akiva, legato dall'appartenenza all'esercito degli angeli, ma gravato da un profondo conflitto interiore, inizia a progettare un altro tipo di battaglia: quella per il riscatto. Per la speranza. Costellato da scene drammatiche, di segreti e di scelte impossibili, "La città di sabbia" porta i due protagonisti sui fronti opposti di una guerra antichissima che ha acquistato nuovo vigore.
