This screening is part of Primi al Cinema, a new Casa Italiana series dedicated to debut films, American and New York premieres and other cinematographic novelties from and about Italy.

La stoffa dei sogni
(Italy, 2016, 101 min.)
In ITALIAN with ENGLISH subtitles

Directed by Gianfranco Cabiddu
Written by Gianfranco Cabiddu, Ugo Chiti, Salvatore De Mola

Starring Sergio Rubini, Ennio Fantastichini, Teresa Saponangelo

Loosely adapted from Eduardo De Filippo’s Arte della commedia and translation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Members of the Camorra on the run and actors seeking for authority meet after a shipwreck on an island-prison. The theatre turns into a free zone where everyone may not be able to recover their social role but for sure their humanity. Somebody can even get love back. Shakespeare and Eduardo De Filippo blend together in a picaresque comedy full of coup de théâtre.

Followed by a Q&A with director Gianfranco Cabiddu, moderated by Valeria Orani (Umanism NY).

RSVP here.

From Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò.
