Italian Festival: Stories of Love that Cannot Belong to this World

More info

Claudia and Flavio loved one another for a long time, obsessively, and with the clemency of the changing and passage of time. Then it all ended. For her, it was like placing someone at the door hoping that it would suddenly open. At fifty years of age, what they see is a world adrift, like an island. He has within him the fury that provides absolution, because he wants to move forward, to get back down to earth; she is a deep well to be drowned in, because saving oneself would mean forgetting, and the memory must never disappear. The time they allow themselves– and perhaps not only that – is not the same. Flavio meets Giorgia – an instant between them is all it takes, and the summer rain does the rest. She, with the energy and freshness of a thirty-year-old, and the coltish body of someone who does not wish to grow, has already shown him solid ground, and he, burdened by life, has abandoned himself to his desires. Claudia and Nina already knew one another – but at university, divided by their role, their ages, and the idea that respect would never turn to love. And yet Nina is absolutely beautiful, seductive and marvellous. Now her embrace is ravenous, and has a power that no woman can escape. The film is the portrait of two generations, the stitch repairing the pain, a powerful story that speaks of us. Show more

Italian Festival: Equilibrium

More info

Thoughts have led to a crisis in the faith and spiritual journey of GIUSEPPE, a forty-year-old priest from Campania, who after spending time as a missionary in Africa now works in a small diocese in Rome. Giuseppe asks the bishop for a transfer – his dream is to make himself useful in a town in his area of birth – and the bishop grants his wish. Giuseppe drives to a small town near Naples, full of enormous apartment blocks of social housing. The parish priest for the area is DON ANTONIO, a highly charismatic and eloquent fifty-five-year-old, who is a local authority, listened to and respected by all. As a matter of fact, Don Antonio has been fighting a battle against the pollution due to the illegal dumping of industrial waste there in the infamous Terra dei Fuochi, or land of fires, where the local Mafia runs refuse collection operations, illegally dumping and burning waste in the open countryside. Don Antonio has been called up to Rome on his own merits: Giuseppe will take his place. The parish is managed alongside SUOR ANTONIETTA, a forty-five-year-old nun who takes care of the children. Before leaving, Don Antonio shows Giuseppe the realities of the area, and so he meets: MARIA, a cancer sufferer, who asks him to track down her son SAVERIO, whom she has not seen in years; GAETANO, a forty-year-old with a disfigured face who controls the current dominant clan of the local mafia; DANIELE, an eight-year-old altar boy who spends his days playing football in the street because the parish pitch is occupied by a goat; and finally ASSUNTA, a problematic 30-year-old mother who, according to Don Antonio, suffers from serious mental health problems. Once he is alone, Giuseppe wants to prove himself a worthy successor to Don Antonio, and so he busies himself. He cleans up and reopens the pitch for Daniele and his friends, he goes in search of SAVERIO and finds him in a park frequented only by drug addicts, and convinces him to go and see his mother. He tries to help the community in every way possible, until Assunta lets him in on an ugly secret: her partner abuses her daughter of just ten. Giuseppe wants to get to the bottom of this, and asks for help from Don Antonio; he, however, casts doubt on Assunta's reality. Giuseppe is threatened by Gaetano, but with great determination and courage he is able to uncover the truth, but he is left out on his own. Giuseppe cannot abandon Assunta and her daughter though, however high the price may be. Show more
