Sat, October 7, 2017         The Stuff of Dreams (La Stoffa dei Sogni)             Cabiddu Gianfranco
A boat carrying a small acting company, together with a group of dangerous members of Camorra, wrecks on the shores of the island prison, Asinara, shortly after WWII. The director of the prison cannot distinguish the criminals from the actors. He has them to put on a play– a play that will tell him who the actors are. 101’

Sat, November 4              The Great War (La Grande Guerra)                  Monicelli Mario
This is a “Commedia all’italiana”–films which, while being comedies, often have serious, even tragic, undertones.  Our two protagonists are a Roman, and a Milanese (played by the great Italian actors: Alberto Sordi and Vittorio Gassman). Caught in the insanity of World War I, this duo will do anything to escape danger and responsibility. 130’

Donatella and Beatrice reside in a psychiatric facility in Tuscany. They have very different life stories, but a chance to escape brings them together in an adventure that will change their lives forever and will help them realize the beauty in imperfection. 108’

Sat, February 3                Italo Barocco                                                     Scarso Alessio
Based on a true story, the film recounts the life of Italo, an extraordinary dog who arrived in the small Sicilian town of Scicli and conquered the affections of the townsfolk. With the traditions of Sicily as the backdrop, this heart-warming tale touches the themes of friendship and unconditional love. A film for the whole family. 100’

Sat, March 3                     Confessions (Le Confessioni)                        Ando’ Aldo
A meeting of the world’s most powerful economists is being held at a luxury hotel on the German coast. One of the guests is a mysterious Italian monk, invited by the director of the International Monetary Fund. He wants the monk to receive his confession, that night, in secret. 100’

Sat, April 7                        The Feather (La Piuma)                                Johnson Roan

Sat, May 5                         The Legend of Tony Vilar (La leggenda di Tony Vilar)                   Gagliardi Giuseppe
Tony Vilar, a southern Italian, moved to Argentina as a child and became one of the most successful South American singers of the 1960’s. He garnered worldwide acclaim for the song “Cuando Calienta el Sol”. At the height of his career Tony Vilar disappeared. This is Italian singer Peppe’s humorous quest to find him. 95’
