Fascisti su Marte, a 2006 Italian political satire

Essentially the work of popular Italian satirist Corrado Guzzanti, Fascisti su Marte (Fascists on Mars) imagines a 1939 expedition to Mars in which a group of followers of Benito Mussolini attempt to turn the Red Planet to Fascist black. Originally developed in 2002 as a skit for Italian television, Fascisti su Marte was expanded to more than 100 minutes and screened at the 2006 Rome Film Festival.

Here’s the first six minutes of Fascisti su Marte.
