Italian filmmakers Luca Ragazzi and Gustav Hofer’s newest documentary, Italy: Love It or Leave It will run at Bloor Hot Docs starting this Friday. The two filmmakers were inspired in different directions by their friends leaving for Berlin, London, and Barcelona for the futures seemingly nonexistent in Italy.
