In Some of You Killed Luisa, Valeria Cherchi (IT) attempts to decode the complex structure of the kidnapping phenomenon that has crossed her homeland, the Italian island of Sardinia. Between
the 1960s and the 1990s almost 200 people were kidnapped for ransom. How to tell a story bound by uncertainty? How to talk about histories that are just partially ended and shrouded in silence? Cherchi is one of the few artists to deal with this dark chapter of Sardinian history by exploring the parts of the story that appear reliable. After several years of field research, interaction with local communities, digging of media archives and her family’s video tapes, she presents a kaleidoscopic story mixing photos, video stills and a log of her research, where memories, sociological and anthropological observations wittily mingle.
