AWARD-WINNING ITALIAN FILM
On Thursday, Sept. 15 (6:00 p.m.), join us for a little gelato (Italian ice cream) and an award-winning, Italian film -- straight from Italy!
This year's film is NOI E LA GIULIA (The Legendary Giulia), voted BEST FILM of the 2016 Italian Film Festival USA season by festival attendees. Plot: three mid-aged men decide to open a rustic, holiday farmhouse in the countryside. They join Sergio and Elisa to make it a reality. Their dreams are blocked when Vito, a mobster, arrives in a vintage Alfa Romero Giulia and asks for protection money. They rebel in a most daring way! Admission free. In Italian with English subtitles. COME EARLY to enjoy a little gelato (Italian ice cream), courtesy of Spiritos, The Italian Store In Italian with English subtitles. (Free admission.)
(The Italian exhibition and film are sponsored by the Italian Film Festival USA and the Collinsville Library. This is the Tenth Anniversary of that partnership.)
