Julka (The Butterfly on the Hook)

Julka (La farfalla sull'attaccapanni)

During fascist times in Trieste, a young Slovenian girl gets brutally punished at school for being caught speaking in her mother tongue.

Trieste, 1926. Julka is an 8-year-old Slovenian girl. She has two inseparable friends, Danilo and Marko; they talk to each other and at home in their own language: Slovenian. However, since the Fascist regime was established, only the use of the Italian language is allowed. For Julka and her friends, a period of persecution and repression begins. One day, caught speaking in Slovenian by the teacher, she suffers a terrible punishment: she is hung on a hook by the braid.
