Italy's cinema imports to be featured at film fest

Seven critically acclaimed Italian films will be screened during the Italian Film Festival Bangkok at Quartier CineArt, fourth floor of EmQuartier, Sukhumvit Road, from tomorrow to Sunday.

Presented by the Italian Embassy and the Dante Alighieri Cultural Association within the framework of the Italian Festival in Thailand 2016, the film fest is to showcase a contemporary image of Italian culture through the quality of its best cinematographic productions.

It will open with the screening of Antonia. (2015), an award-winning drama by Ferdinando Cito Filmarino, tomorrow at 8pm. It portrays the last 10 years of Italian poet Antonia Pozzi’s brief life and her work. Linda Caridi, the actress who plays the titular role, will fly in from Italy especially for this festival. The screening will repeat on Saturday at 8.30pm.

The other six movies include:

- The Repairman (2013) on Thursday at 3.30pm and Saturday at 4.30pm. Directed by Paolo Mitton, the comedy centres around a failed engineer who earns a living repairing coffee machines.

-  Mia Madre (My Mother) (2015) on Thursday at 8.30pm and Sunday at 6.30pm. Directed by Nanni Moretti, the drama tells about a film director who has to deal with the inevitable and still unacceptable loss of her mother.

- Io E Lei (Me, Myself and Her) (2015) on Thursday at 3.30pm and Saturday at 6.30pm. Directed by Maria Sole Tognazzi, this is a comedy of real love and passion — fought from day to day.

-  Il Nome Del Figlio (An ItalianName) (2015) on Thursday at 8.30pm and Friday at 2.30pm. Directed by Francesca Archibugi, the comedy is about a couple waiting for a baby and deciding his name, but it seems their family and friends don’t really like the chosen name.

- I Racconti Dell’orso (The Bear Tales) (2015) on Friday at 7pm and Sunday at 5pm. Directed by Samuele Sestieri and Olmo Amato, the fantasy tells about two surreal characters trying to bring the inanimate toy to life — an escape from the void that surrounds them.

-  Youth (2015) on Friday at 8.30pm and Sunday at 8.30pm. Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, the drama tells about a retired orchestra conductor receiving an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II to perform for Prince Philip’s birthday.
