Using the testimony of four members of the commando that kidnapped and executed Aldo Moro in 1978, Levi Mosco Boucault traces the history of the Italian Red Brigades. It took Boucault sixteen years to complete They Were the Red Brigades after his first meeting with Renato Curcio in 1995, opposing the conventional image of the Red Brigades and providing a more political and comprehensive view.


Mosco Levi Boucault (1944) directs TV documentaries. Terrorists in Retirement (1985) presents a portrait of the Groupe Manouchian, urban guerrillas led by Communist Jews in Paris during the Nazi occupation. His subsequent films focus on Communist history, Roubaix and Berlusconi.
