The North looks Southward


- Frankfurt, Helsinki, and Copenhagen will host two festivals dedicated to recent Italian films by the masterful Ermanno Olmi and young Edoardo Winspeare

The North looks Southward

Italian cinema is being celebrated in Europe. The Made in Italy association, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, the Italian Consulate General, and the Italian Cultural Institute, is organizing two events dedicated to Italian cinema.
The festivals are slated to take place in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as in Scandinavian countries.
From November 23 until December 1, the eighth edition of Verso Sud, an annual festival that programs a selection of recent films, will open in Frankfurt. This year’s program includes a German premier of Alla rivoluzione sulla due cavalli, which will include the presence of director Maurizio Sciarra. The film will subsequently be distributed throughout Germany by Arsenal. Other films to be shown include Francesca Archibugi’s Tomorrow, Laura Muascardin’s Giorni, Giuseppe Piccioni’s Light of My Eyes, Vicenzo Terracciano’s Ribelli per caso, Ermanno Olmi’s Profession of Arms, and Paolo Sorrentino’s L’uomo in più. The program also features a tribute to Giuliano Montaldo with the showing of some of his films, including Giordano Bruno, Sacco and Vanzetti, Il giocattolo, and L’Agnese va a morire, as well as a collection of short subjects selected in collaboration with Capalbio Cinema.
Then, from November 22 until December 15, Italy will be moving on to Helsinki and Copenhagen with Italian Cinema Today. The fourth edition of this festival will be held at a cinema owned by director Aki Kaurismaki and his producer brother, Mika. This year’s program will include showings of Paolo Benvenuti’s Gostanza da Libbiano, Nina Di Majo’s L’inverno, Gianluca Maria Tavarelli’s Qui non è il paradiso, Emidio Greco’s The Council of Egypt, and Edoardo Winspeare’s Life Blood.
