Another way to describe this is as creative-response or our striving capacity as human beings to transform our obstacles into opportunities to make the world work better for everyone. Some describe this as the core element of the American Dream: you work hard, live with honesty, humility, and honor and all the rewards of America are then made available to you. The reality is quite different and can often be brutal and harsh. The story of Frank Serpico is then so much more than an honest cop who did the right thing: it uncovers the unrealized possibility of the American democratic experiment and the unlimited potential of the human spirit.
It was ultimately humbling and life-changing. You have to develop trust and give yourself over to the process.
But the challenge of telling the story of someone who encountered so much betrayal in his life led me to find many different creative openings to realize the vision I had in mind for this film. In some ways, I had to keep tapping reservoirs of courage and resoluteness to keep pushing this project to completion. There, speaking a common language Italian and discussing key things we learned from our parents—honor, integrity, hard work, being skeptical of power—were all things that connected us.
There are things that both our families did—passing down mantras, ethical codes if you will.
This became important as Frank himself performs his life throughout my film and the film is very much about memory, representation and reality. So highlighting the negative effects of celebrity and fame also allowed the film to present a more nuanced, empathetic portrayal. When Pino Daniele died of a heart attack two years ago, several precious links of cultural history were snapped.

That lament, full of longing and loss, but with a icker of hope, echoes with us still. A lesser-known aspect of the history of fascism in Italy and the larger tragedy of the Shoah is the exile of Italian Jews to America. As our web presence grew through the online monthly Printed Matter , we realized that the more content we provided the more interest we stimulated. In other words, publishing books is a natural extension of our website.

This story has never been told in its entirety, though many of the exiles have written books and personal memoirs. When fascism came to power in , some Italian Jewish families welcomed the new regime, an indication of how assimilated into the communities had become. Italy had Jewish prime ministers and Rome had a Jewish mayor when France—home of the Enlightenment—was convulsed by the Dreyfuss Affair. But by the mids all had changed and the first Italian translation of T he Protocols of the Elders of Zion , while little noticed at the time, was an ominous shot across the bow.
By the fall of , thousands were faced with a wrenching decision: to stay or go into exile? It was a disparate group. In addition to architects, musicians, artists, journalists, designers, mathematicians, and no less than three later Nobel Prize winners, there was a seamstress, a door-to-door salesman.

At that moment we realized that all five of us had incredibly vivid memories of when he and his wife visited Italy. We were all children, but none of us forgot the excitement that enlivened the family and especially their fascinating stories. And, at the same time, we remembered the tension we perceived in our parents questions.
